The Government of Uganda has introduced the online visa application system with effect from 01 July 2016.
All persons intending to travel to Uganda are required to apply and obtain a visa online. Applications should be completed online on the following link: https://visas.immigration.go.ug/.
Once the application has been processed, the decision taken will be emailed through to the applicant. If approved, an approval letter will be sent as an attachment to the email provided. This approval letter should then be printed out and presented, together with a valid passport / travel document, at the port of entry.
Information about documents required for the online visa application can be found here: https://visas.immigration.go.ug/#/help/visa
It will still be possible to get visas on arrival through the month of July 2016; however, the traveler will have to go through the electronic application process (as above) at the port of entry. This will only apply in the month of July 2016, after which all visa applications will have to be completed online.
