Meanwhile does Uganda remains firmly rooted in the Covid19 regulation stone age, stubbornly refusing to do what most of Africa’s leading tourism destinations have already implemented, i.e. accepting to drop the need for arrival / departure PCR tests for fully vaccinated travelers.

Sections of the tourism sector are finally also beginning to take issue with that while, sadly as usual, others remain silent on matters of industry survival.
