The airport is open, though one is required to have a COVID-19 negative certificate. The certificate must have been issued at least 120 hours before departure and for the individuals intending to travel out of Uganda, they MUST have COVID-19 certificates that indicate travel as the intended purpose of test, otherwise authorities at the airport might inconvenience you leading to delays and worst case scenario missing of flights.
The President is today (Nov 29) addressing the nation on COVID-19 and other pertinent issues. He has congratulated Ugandans for listening to the advice and he adds that the world is about to get out of this as they work on the vaccine, so you should not allow the boat to sink when it is about to get to the landing site.
