Uganda has a lot to offer tourists ranging from water activities in Lake Victoria all the way to exploring the history of the Baganda Kingdom. However, you need a tourist visa to Uganda to get to all these attractions, and Travel Visa Pro is here to help you out. What’s more, we can expedite the application to ensure that you get started on your trip right away.
You will start off by making an online application, as requested by the government of Uganda. Our dedicated specialists will help you out in this regard if you face any challenges. From here, you will submit some documents to our agents. First, you will hand in the visa application form you filled, ensuring that you sign it before submission. Next, we require that you have an original US passport. It should be well-kept and should have at least six months validity. If not, our agents will guide you regarding renewing your passport as you will not gain entry to Uganda with less than six months on your passport. We also require that you have two passport photos that are as per the state department’s guidelines.
A travel itinerary is essential at this stage. You could either hand in a copy of your round-trip tickets or detailed information on places you will visit. The applicant’s details should be on the itinerary for it to be valid. In addition to this, you should have a copy of hotel reservations in the name of the applicant. Anyone entering Uganda must have a yellow fever vaccination certificate, and our agents will advise you as to how you can get one. If you are going to visit as a result of a personal invitation, you should have details of the host including their proof of identity. Our agents will help you out at this stage.
With this information, we can successfully process your tourist visa to Uganda. Enjoy your stay!

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.
