Security To Block Essential Workers Without Electronic Travel Permits


The government has revealed that essential workers without electronic permits issued by the Ministry of Works and Transport will not be allowed on the roads today.

The Nakawa Deputy Resident City Commissioner (RCC), Mr Anderson Burora, yesterday told journalists that most essential workers who applied for permits have been approved by the Works ministry and these are the only ones that will be allowed on the roads.

Ministry of Works and Transport last week commenced the issuance of travel permits to the essential works who have been allowed to travel with vehicles during the second national lockdown which started last Friday after the president announced another lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19.

The groups that will be allowed to travel include among others health workers, patients, select government workers as well as people working in key sectors such as banking, utilities and mass communication.

The media, health workers and security personnel are the only categories allowed to move beyond the curfew time that was recently pulled back to between 7 pm and 5:30 am.

The forms will then be filled and submitted to the same link with the names of the health workers and other essential workers that will be working throughout this period.

For those who applied or are yet to apply, the Ministry of Works and Transport will either accept or deny permission of the request. Feedback will be communicated through the same link where a movement permit will be generated once permission is granted.

The movement permit will have a QR code, names of the essential worker, name of the place of work and the National Identification Number (NIN). The permit will still be downloaded from the MoWT provided online link.
