Uganda eVisa Information

1. What is an Uganda eVisa?

All citizens from eligible countries are required to hold an eVisa to enter Uganda. An eVisa is an official travel document permitting eligible nationals to visit Uganda. The Uganda eVisa is an electronic travel authorization that can be obtained prior to arrival in Uganda by completing the simple form online. Thanks to the Uganda eVisa system, foreign visitors can obtain their eVisas without having to visit embassies or consulates to apply for the standard visa. The eVisa will be sent to the customer's email address. EVisa holders will be asked to present their passport along with a printed eVisa upon arrival. Uganda's eVisa validity varies depending on the visa type. The standard single-entry electronic visa is valid for 90 days from the date of issue. There are also Multiple entry visas available. EVisa can be extended at the Immigration Offices in Kampala and Entebbe.
