Uganda Official or Diplomatic Visa Requirements

These requirements are applicable for US Citizens applying at the Washington DC Office

Effective August 1 2016, Uganda’s visa on arrival program has officially ended.

Visitors who arrive at either Entebbe International Airport or the various land borders without having applied for and obtained an visa in advance will be denied boarding by your airline or entry at a land border check point.
Airlines have been informed to deny boarding to any passengers heading to Uganda unless they can show proof of having applied for a visa and obtained one in advance.

Please send TDS your current valid and signed passport. Passport must be valid 6 months beyond the expected date of departure from Uganda and must have at least one blank visa page. If your passport expires within your departure date, you must renew your passport and then we will secure your visa with the new passport.
