  • Current EBB airport SOPs can be found here.
  • As of 07 Oct 2020, Uganda immigration is requiring that all international arrivals show PCR (other types of tests will not be accepted) negative COVID-19 test results, noted in English, and dated within 72 hours prior to their arrival into EBB.
  • As of 07 Oct 2020, Uganda immigration is requiring that all international departures show PCR (other types of tests will not be accepted) negative COVID-19 test results, noted in English, and dated within 72 hours prior to their departure into EBB.
  • Classic Africa Safaris has secured the services of a private clinic which will administer PCR COVID-19 tests exclusively for our travelers in their hotel in Entebbe. 
  • Testing is approximately $110, payments must be made in cash and settled directly with the clinic at the time of service.
  • Current wait time for test results can range up to 48 hours and we therefore advise that all travelers plan on adding two (2) nights at the end of their itinerary in Entebbe. 
  • These hotel costs and additional services are at the travelers expense and should be pre-arranged. 
  • Quarantine is not currently required and touring options will be available for clients while they wait in Entebbe (pending Ugandan COVID restrictions and WHO guidelines). Limited services may be available at restaurants and tourist sites.
  • We are reviewing trips on a case by case basis.
