With immediate effective ALL persons of Somali origin ( even on dual nationality) MUST have an e-visa or a visa sticker in their passports before they travel to Uganda.
The Electronic Visas and Permit application system was implemented by the Ministry of Internal Affairs through the Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control and eventually rolled out to the various Embassies and High Commissions abroad. This is expected to improve on the effectiveness of the Issuance of Visas and Entry Permits.
Electronic visas are applied for online at the web portal www.visas.immigration.go.ug. All a person intending to Travel to Uganda does is go to the web portal and apply for an appropriate Entry Visa or Permit. This now means that Applicants can have their approved visas personalised and visa stickers placed in their passports at the mission.
