Some of the violators

The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has started to hunt for Temporary Road License violators in the country.

According to a statement released by URA, a Temporary Road License (TRL) is a document issued to foreigners intending to come into Uganda with their foreign registered vehicles or Ugandans working abroad with valid work permits.

“With the Temporary Road License, a person is granted a maximum of 90 days and once they expire, they are supposed to return to their countries. However, some foreigners and Ugandans living out of the country commonly known as “ba-summer” violate the TRLs. They choose to stay and test their luck,” URA said.
