COVID19 Travel Updates

The steering committee for ICCC2022 is regularly monitoring the changing landscape of the pandemic and its impact on the meeting activities and travel. Here are some helpful resources to inform your plans:​

  • Speke Resort Munyonyo - COVID19 mitigation policies and practices

  • CDC Recommendations for Travel in Uganda (vaccinated and unvaccinated)

  • Current Entry Requirements into Uganda (May 10, 2021): COVID-19 vaccination: Individuals who have received a full COVID-19 vaccination and are asymptomatic will be allowed into Uganda without the need for testing on arrival.  You will need to show evidence of your vaccination. For those who are not fully vaccinated, persons will be subjected to a PCR COVID-19 test, at the traveler’s expense, at Entebbe International Airport.  These travelers will have to wait for their negative results before proceeding to their final destination in Uganda, which may necessitate a stay at a hotel in proximity to Entebbe Airport. If you are not vaccinated, we recommend that you do not attend ICCC.   

Recommended travel vaccines:
  • Routine vaccines, including Measles

  • Yellow Fever – required

  • Hepatitis A

  • Typhoid

  • SARS-CoV-2

Recommended medications:
  • Malaria chemoprophylaxis is recommended with options of: atovaquone-proguanil, doxycycline, or mefloquine.

  • Consideration of mosquito avoidance with DEET on exposed skin and/or permethrin treatment of clothing
