Visas & Passports

A visa is a clearance permitting an individual to proceed to visit another country. Ugandan visas are issued at our Missions/Embassies abroad and also at the Entry/Exit Points such as Entebbe airport, Busia, Malaba, Katuna, etc. Underlying the Uganda Visa Policy is the principle of reciprocity, which is all countries that require visas for Ugandans are also visa prone in Uganda. Ugandan visas are required by the citizens of the European Union, the USA and Japan.
