Yellow Fever Vaccine is a kind of vaccine that protects people against Yellow Fever.

The Fellow Fever Card is known as a certificate or proof used to prove that the tourist has had the Yellow Fever vaccine. 

The Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Health is committed to protecting the population from the risk of importing or further spreading the Yellow Fever virus by establishing entry and exit requirement on Yellow Fever Vaccination for travelers. If you already have had a Yellow Fever Card, it is not a requirement for you to receive booster one because the one-time vaccination gives you lifelong protection.

You should get the vaccine at least 10 days before your trip since the vaccine requires a certain amount of time to activate and be valid. Yellow Fever vaccine is highly recommended and safe for people aging from 9 months to 60 years. Please be noted if you have infants, pregnant women or older people being over 60 years old who intend to get this vaccine, you need to ask advice from healthcare providers since the vaccine is not completely safe for these conditions. 

It is mandatory if you are applying for an East Africa Tourist Visa. A return ticket means a booking confirmation of flight ticket leaving Uganda, whereas the travel itinerary consists of a detailed plan or route of your journey in the three countries (Uganda, Rwanda, and Kenya). 

The clearance is an official document issued as a result of a background check by the police or government agency of a country to enumerate any criminal records that the applicant may have. Criminal records may include arrest, conviction, and possibly criminal proceedings.
