Under the East African Customs Management Act, only goods imported for a temporary use or purpose, as well as goods imported for repair, shall be exempt from import duties.  However, such exemptions are only made if the importation of the goods was duly authorized by the Ugandan authorities, and the authorities exercise broad discretion in issuing such authorizations.
