Ugandans stranded in Canada repatriated by Uganda High Commission Ottawa.
A second group of 88 passengers were flagged off at the Lester B. Pearson International Airport Toronto by Uganda’s High Commissioner to Canada H.E. Joy Ruth Acheng.
These Ugandan Nationals and legal residents who departed Canada, South America and the Caribbean yesterday 18th July, will transit through Addis Ababa and will arrive at Entebbe International Airport today Sunday 19th July 2020.
Given the closure of numerous borders in both North and South America due to COVID-19 concerns and visa limitations of several of the affected persons it was necessary to create multiple departure locations, to ensure that everyone who could do so was afforded an opportunity to return.
