Government of Uganda has clarified that Entebbe International airport and land borders will reopen on October 1, 2020 for both tourists and other travelers.

Peter Ogwang, the state minister for information and communication technology says  there will be much emphasis on travelers presenting certificates of negative test results for Covid-19.

The tests, Minister Ogwang says must be done 72 hours before arriving in the country.

In a national address on Covid-19, President Museveni said Sunday that the international airport and land borders would be opened for tourists coming in and out-going, provided they tested negative 72 hours before arriving in Uganda.

However, the statement seemed un clear to the public, prompting the minister to expound more on the matter.
