The Government of the Republic of Uganda has given the following directives effective 3rd July 2021 until 31 July 2021 regarding clearance of tourists and other residents returning to Uganda:
- Airlines shall carry only travellers with approved and authorized visas or valid resident facility (entry/work permits, passes or certificate of residence).
- All travellers holding ordinary passports from Countries whose citizens are required to have visas to enter Uganda will be required to apply for visas online prior to travel at visas.immigration.go.ug and will receive an approved notification which they must print and travel with as travel authorization.
The above directives are effective as of 3rd July, and as Adventure Consults, we request all our clients to kindly adhere accordingly so as to avoid any inconveniences.
When applying for visas, please be extra careful and ensure accurate info is submitted to avoid any delays.
Prior to the above changes, both online system and obtaining visas on arrival at Entebbe international airport have been working CONCURRENTLY. We are not certain whether the new procedure will actually be up to 31st July 2021 or beyond, so we it’s recommended that from now onwards to ensure online application option is used until advised otherwise.
