Clarification on E-Visa on Arrival Deadline

Date: 
Thursday, July 28, 2016

The Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control (DCIC) wishes to refute wrong information published by some sources that visitors coming into Uganda, with effect from 1st August 2016 will not be allowed entry without an approved e-visa.

DCIC shall at an appropriate time inform IATA, ICAO and other stakeholders in the Tourism and Travel Industry should there be any development. Currently, we continue to issue visas both electronically and manually at the points of entry and Embassies and Missions abroad.

The unverified information as provided by some sources is malicious and untruthful and should be treated as such.
