Yellow Fever Certificate

The Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Health is committed to protect the population from the risk of importing or further spreading Yellow Fever virus by establishing entry and exit requirement on Yellow Fever Vaccination for travellers.  


Proof of vaccination is often required for travellers arriving from countries with risk of Yellow Fever transmission and sometimes for travellers in transit through such countries.


Accordingly, in line with International Health Regulations, Uganda abides by World Health Assembly resolutions on the requirement for Yellow Fever vaccination for travellers, thus;


1. Yellow Fever vaccination certificate is a requirement for persons travelling from endemic countries to Yellow Fever free countries.


2. It is not a requirement for travellers to receive booster does after the one-time vaccination which gives lifelong protection.


If you're not able to have the vaccine, contact a yellow fever vaccination centre or your GP who may provide you with an exemption letter which can be uploaded in place of the yellow fever certificate.
