UGANDA VISA REQUIREMENTS, FEES & HOW TO APPLY

Uganda Electronic Visa/Permit Application System:

The Uganda Electronic Visa/Permit Application System performs checks against law enforcement databases. All travelers seeking admission are required to obtain a Uganda visa using this system prior to being granted boarding.

If your Uganda eVisa or permit application is approved, it establishes that you are eligible for the approved visa or permit, but does not establish that your application is definitely approved.

Upon arrival to Uganda (at the selected point of entry) or to the Immigration Office Headquarters, you will be inspected by an Immigration Officer who may determine if your application is finally approved. All information provided by you, or on your behalf by a designated third party, must be true and correct.

A visa or permit application approval may be revoked at any time and for any reason, such as new information influencing eligibility. You may be subject to administrative or criminal penalties if you knowingly and willfully make a materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation in an electronic visa or permit application submitted by you or on your behalf.

Udanda EVisa Application Process:
