Uganda Introduces Digital Health Declaration Form – Nov.2022November 16, 2022 - 2 minutes read
Greetings from Adventure Consults!
As the world is getting more careful with both human and wildlife health, the government of the
Republic of Uganda has issued new measures at all points of entry and departure.
Effective 14th November 2022, all travellers are required to fill out an online digital health declaration
form. The same form must be filled within 24 hours of travel for all departures and arrivals. The digital
form can be downloaded using the link https://poe-screening.health.go.ug or scan the QR code below.
The questions in the form are very basic and takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
The same procedure has been in place for some months, but forms were filled manually while onboard
or on arrival at specific destinations. To make your own or your clients’ travel plans seamless, Adventure
Consults is happy to provide assistance (where possible), so please get in touch –
Best Time to travel to Uganda.
Uganda has a lot to offer (check out our Holiday options). Safaris are available all year-round, although
the best trekking, hiking and game-viewing periods are during the dry months of June through early
September and late December through February. Since Uganda lies across the equator, daytime
temperatures in most parts of the country are consistently warm all year. Temperatures can be much
cooler in the higher altitudes of Uganda’s mountains and forests especially at night. The Virunga
Volcanoes, which straddle Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo are higher than
Bwindi and thus tend to be cooler. The rainy seasons peak from late-September to November (with
short rains) and from March to May (long rains), and gorilla tracking during these times can be more
challenging but very interesting and nice for quality pictures.
Adventure Consults therefore recommends that you take Uganda holiday whenever you are ready as
you may avoid the “official” rainy season only to find that it pours throughout your visit during another
