Does the visa office stay open 24 hours - as our plane arrives every late?

The visa payments are made at the arrivals, whoever handles will assist you.

I flew to EBB today and as I was boarding the flight realized in a panic that I didn't have $50 on me to buy the visa. When I landed in EBB, it was no problem to withdraw UGX from an ATM and pay for the visa in UGX (150,000 UGX). I thought i would post that info for anyone else in a similar situation, as I didn't see that info anywhere on the site. Of course, 150,000 UGX is worth a bit more than $50 at current exchange rates, but it's also a convenient solution for anyone who has trouble getting USD.

I had to walk out past baggage claim to where there are a couple ATMs, but I wasn't really accompanied. They just kept my passport at passport control and I briefly explained the situation to a security guard along the way and she waved me through without any problem. It wasn't a big deal at all, and I got the feeling I was far from the only person to have ever had to do this!

Can you purchase the East Africa Visa at Entebbe? Do you need to have any sort of pre approved paperwork and Can you pay in US Dollars?

Thanks so much
