Passport/Visa Note

All visitors require a passport that is valid for at least six months on entry. Visitors must hold return or onward tickets, proof of reason for visit, an address and contact number in Uganda, and sufficient funds. A visa can be obtained on arrival at a cost of USD 50. With effect from 1 July 2016, Uganda has introduced an e-visa system; it is advised that visitors apply in advance online for the e-visa before travel. Authorisation is granted via email which should be printed and given to immigration officials on arrival in Uganda, along with the USD 50 in cash. A valid 'East African Tourist Visa' issued by Kenya or Rwanda is accepted, provided having first entered the country that issued the visa.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
