Uganda Visa

Uganda – Passport and Visa Required

Visa Requirements for U.S. Citizens

The Embassy of the Republic of Uganda in Washington DC also informs the general public that the Government of Uganda adopted the e-visa system (electronic visa) in 2017 for easier, quicker and more efficient service delivery to all those who wish to travel to Uganda. Therefore, from 1st April 2018, the Embassy will no longer issue manually processed visas (sent through the mail and/or dropped off by courier as has been the practice).
