Gaining entry into Uganda has taken a new direction, owing to advancements by the government through the introduction of a pre-approval system. As such, you must complete an online application before your arrival in the country. The government authorities in Uganda will then review your application, and once they approve of it, you will get a visa which you can print out at the immigration office on arrival in the country. It is also essential that you note that biometrics will get taken once you touch down in the country. As such, Travel Visa Pro works to help you in the pre-approval process, thus making your trip a success.
First off, you need to fill out an e-visa application form which you will find online. Our agents are on call to help you through each stage in the process, and you should not face any challenges in this regard. When filling in the form, you will require some digital copies. The first is a scanned copy of your US passport. When making a scan, ensure that the information displayed is visible. Also, make sure that the passport you use is valid. Next, you need to include a passport photo taken in the last three months. For you to get a Uganda Visa, you must prove that you have received a yellow fever vaccine. As such, you should locate a clinic that offers such services, something which our agents can help you in doing. If you qualify for multiple entries, you should also include letters from two referees in Uganda, a statement as to the cause of numerous visits as well as police clearance from US or Interpol. If you have entered and left the country in the past one year, proof of the same should be present. On arrival in Uganda, you will require a printed approval letter, an original yellow fever certificate, a copy of your current passport as well as a recent passport photo.

Ugandan immigration imposes a fine of up to $100 per day for visa overstays and may detain individuals who overstay their visas until the fine is paid. Be aware that the Ugandan immigration officer at the port of entry determines the length of authorized stay, which is generally from two weeks to three months for tourists. Immigration policies are not always consistently applied and may change without notice. Extensions of duration of stay may be requested at Ugandan immigration headquarters Jinja Road in Kampala.
