A Yellow fever certificate is required from some countries. All visitors are advised to take Malaria prophylactic drugs. Its advisable to drink bottled water rather than tap water.

Hard currency can be changed fir local currency at banks & private bureau de change in all large towns; but travellers’ cheques are not widely accepted outside Kampala. Local currency can be drawn against Visa and other major Credit cards at selected ATM’s in Kampala, at Entebbe International Airport and a few other large towns.
