The Uganda Government has introduced an electronic pre-approval system. An online application must be completed by all travelers prior to arrival in Uganda. Once the application has been approved, travelers will have the visa issued and printed at the Immigration Office Headquarters at the point of entry. Bio-metrics will be taken on arrival. VisaHQ will assist you with the pre-approval process.
