Uganda eVisa Information

There are two types of visas to enter Uganda: an electronic visa (eVisa) and a traditional visa. If you are travelling to Uganda you must apply for an eVisa in advance which will allow you to enter the country. In most cases, the eVisa replaces a traditional visa, so nowadays the process is much faster and simpler.

It is very important to request an eVisa before arrival at the destination since visitors who wish to arrive at Entebbe International Airport without having requested it, the airline will deny boarding. The eVisa is essential for all travelers who want to travel for tourism, business, family visits, holidays, students, diplomats, officials, conferences, etc.

Uganda eVisa requirements

If you wish to visit Uganda and apply for an eVisa, you must meet some basic requirements. The following documents are required for processing your application:

  • Passport: the document must be valid for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Uganda.
  • A scan/copy of the passport.
  • A recent colourful photo.
  • Yellow fever vaccination certificate.

Note that these documentation is specially for Tourist eVisa so when you apply for another type of visa, you will need some additional documents.
