An Electronic Visa or "e-Visa" is an electronically issued and stored authority for travel to Uganda, which replaces the traditional paper visa process in most cases.
The Uganda Government issues two types of visas: An e-Visa (electronic visa) and a traditional visa stamped into your passport.
TravelDocs recommends applying for an e-Visa if you only require a single entry visa for Uganda If a multiple entry visa is required please apply for the traditional stamped visa.
The e-Visa is valid for a single entry only, good for 90 days from date of issue for a stay up to 90 days. It is very easy to apply for and does not required sending your physical passport to TravelDocs. It can be issued in as little as 24 hours (Monday - Friday) and is a cost-effective option.
A Traditional Stamped Visa is valid for multiple (or single) entries into Uganda, good for 3-6 months from date of issue for a stay up to 30-90 days. This option requires your physical passport and supporting documents to be sent to TravelDocs for submission to the Uganda Embassy for processing. Although slightly more complicated and expensive to apply for this option is best if you require more than one entry into Uganda as part of your itinerary and/or you may return to Uganda with 6 months.
