Updates on Entry Visa to Uganda
24th September 2021
Uganda ceased issuing VISA on arrival for all nationals until further notice. All nationals that require a visa must apply and pay for an e-visa online prior to traveling to Entebbe. Entebbe immigration shall not process e-visa applications on arrival.
Entebbe International Airport has reopened to commercial travel in October 2020, with all passengers required to present a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 72 hours before boarding the aircraft to Uganda. Those without a valid test result will be denied entry. When leaving, passengers are also required to present a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of departure from Uganda. Passengers travelling on flights during curfew hours will be permitted to travel to the airport on presentation of a valid ticket.
Passengers arriving from designated Category 2 countries, including the UK, USA, UAE, Turkey, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Tanzania will additionally be subject to a PCR test on arrival at their own expense (US$65 at Entebbe). Passengers arriving by air will be taken from Entebbe to a nearby testing site, and results may take up to 4 hours. Anyone who tests positive will be taken to a Ministry of Health-designated COVID-19 isolation facility. Fully vaccinated passengers from these countries are exempt from this requirement if they have evidence of vaccination and display no COVID-19 symptoms.
