All visitors to Uganda must possess a visa, as Uganda does not have a bilateral visa requirement agreement with any nation. Visas can be obtained on arrival at the international airport at Entebbe or at any of the major border stations on land.
Visa costs depend on the type of visa issued. Both single and double entry visas are usually valid for three months and they cost approximately $30 and $60, respectively. Students with a valid student ID can pay a little less, $20 and $40 for a single and a double entry visa, respectively. 48-hour transit visas are also available and they cost about $15. Visas for onward travel in Africa can also be obtained at Uganda. The embassies of Tanzania, Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Burundi issue visas for travelling to their respective nations.
Go to the immigration office located in the eastern side of central Kampala for obtaining visa extensions.
Note: It is recommended that you check the latest visa and passport requirements with your embassy before planning a trip to Uganda. These rules are subject to changes very often.
