Yes. You must consult your doctor on which vaccinations you will need. For some vaccinations you need to have the “course” of injections over a number of weeks so be sure to go and see your doctor a well in advance of your departure date. Yellow Fever is mandatory for entering Uganda and you could be asked to show the certificate.

Our local currency in Uganda is Ugandan Shillings (UGX) and is the currency used day to day. Unfortunately UGX is a closed currency and therefore cannot be purchased prior to your arrival in Uganda. You will be informed by any exchange bureaus that you need US Dollar (USD) for Uganda. Unfortunately this is misleading and rather untrue – you can bring British Pounds, Euros and Australian Dollars all of which can be changed here and will save you losing money on exchanging GBP to USD to UGX.
ATM machines are widely accessible and by far the easiest way to access money here. You must remember to let you bank know that you are coming to Uganda. We do advise traveling with a bit of cash in case your ATM card doesn’t work immediately. Travellers cheques are more trouble than they are worth.
NOte This: If you are bringing US dollars make sure that they are large denominations ($50 and $100) as you will get a poor exchange rate for lower value notes. Please bring US dollars dated 2009 and above. Most banks and exchange bureaus here do not accept dollars dated before 2009.
Most big activities will be priced in USD but you can pay for everything in UGX it’s just that the companies pricing activities in USD will charge a UGX equivalent based on the exchange rate that day and it will tend to be in their favour! It can therefore be advisable to bring some money with you in USD.
