Temporary entry ban to Sweden

To mitigate the effects of the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the outbreak, a temporary ban on entry to the EU via Sweden is in force. The Government has decided to extend the entry ban until 22 December 2020. Due to the coronavirus and the temporary entry ban to Sweden, the Swedish Migration Agency has decided that the majority of visa applications will be rejected. This applies if you wish to visit Sweden and are a citizen of a country outside the EU.

Building resilience in refugee and host communities through grants to pregnant and lactating women in West Nile

20 Nov 2020

This week, the Embassy joined our partners World Food Program and UNICEF on a field visit to monitor the payment of emergency cash transfers to pregnant and lactating women from both refugee and host communities in West Nile. The distribution took place in Rhino Camp refugee settlement, Ocea Zone, Madi Okollo district and each woman received a payment of UGX 96,000. The money is intended to stabilise women’s and children’s feeding following disruptions in their access to nutritious food during the COVID-19 lockdown, further exacerbated by cuts in WFP food rations to all refugees living in 13 settlements in Uganda.
