US Embassy, Kampala, Warden's Notices

Critical Updates | Uganda Mission Home

These files were received from the US Embassy in Kampala, issued to US citizens living in or visiting Uganda. Some are general statements and other reflect specific threats or other issues US citizens should be aware of. In the past I only posted those about areas where my teams were doing ministry. As I understood others were checking these posts, I have attempted to post all that are released. They are listed by issue date with general subject matter. PLEASE NOTE: While the information contained in the Embassy Warden Section is factual, you should also understand it's purpose is to cover every base so travelers cannot say they were not warned. It is only a picture of the "bad and the ugly" without the "good." Uganda is a wonderful place for ministry. Do not allow this information to keep you away, just be prudent and follow the advice given. Do not put yourself in a compromised situation in Uganda any more than you would in your own home town. Elsewhere, I tell the story of a team member who had a wonderful trip to Uganda and had her pursed snatched as she was coming out of a local drug store chain where she had dropped off her film (this was in 2004) of the trip to be developed and printed. I strongly recommend registering your trip with the US State Department's Smart Travelers Enrollment Program
