Tourist Visas for Uganda
You have to apply for your Ugandan single entry visa or East Africa Visa (Uganda, Kenya and
Rwanda) online, through the Ugandan E-visa System via the following link:
If your application is accepted, a letter of approval/electronic visa will be sent by email within
a few days. You will take this document – together with a valid passport/travel document –
to the point of entry. You will pay the visa fee of USD 50 for a single Uganda Entry visa (or USD
100 for an East Africa Visa) by credit card. Note that your online application will only be
processed after paying through the system.
You can only apply for the East Africa Visa via the Ugandan system if Uganda is your first
country visited in East Africa. If you enter East Africa via Rwanda or Kenya, you will have to
apply via the E-visa system of the country you will enter first.
Please always check with your embassy if any different rules apply to your country of
Please do note, that only travellers with approved visas having applied online will be granted
entry into the country. We, therefore, advise people to apply and pay for their online visa at least 3 to 4 weeks prior to arrival in Uganda. The earliest you can apply is 3 months in advance.
