Passport & visa requirements

Andrew Roberts has just alerted me to a new ruling that, with effect from 1 June 2011, all visitors to Uganda’s passports are required to have at least one year of validity remaining from the date of entry.

Also, please note that irrespective of the duration of the visa granted, immigration often stamps the passport for a shorter period on arrival.  If so, the visitor will need to get the stamp extended at any immigration office free of charge (unless extending beyond the duration of the initial visa).

Prospective visitors should also note another development as follows”: ‘Visitors should not overstay their visa validity otherwise they will be subjected to a fine of U$ 30 per day and other appropriate legal action’
