looked at ARP Travel website and found a posting from May 20th saying that the Uganda e visa has not been implemented and that you can still purchase at the point of entry.
the single entry visa is $100. an east Africa tourist visa is also $100 enabling 3 months travel between Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda but immigration at Entebbe are often reluctant to let you have one as they have to split the revenue with the other countries. have heard excuses like, we have no application forms, they have run out etc.
Hi Paul, I wonder whether you used the online system? If so, did you have any issues with the visas? Thanks.
I used the e-visa system last week for a trip in October. It was very easy and straightforward. Beforehand, I took photos of my passport signature page, yellow fever certificate, and of myself in the passport photo style. Filled out the online form which took about 10 minutes and uploaded the photos. Within 24 hours the website said my application was approved and provided a paper to print out with a barcode. You take the paper and the other documents with you when you arrive in Uganda, along with $50. The fee was lowered to $50.
That's very helpful, thanks. I plan to apply online, and am hoping that not only is the process straightforward for the application, but that it is also straightforward on arrival in Uganda!
All the best for your trip.
I am traveling next week and have not had much success with the e-visa. I have sent numerous follow up emails and heard nothing. After visiting the embassy here in London I was told I would be ok and can do visa at the airport. I'm still worried incase it is e-visa or nothing. Does anyone know if it is still OK to get visas at the Entebbe airport? Thank you.
They never sent me an email saying it was approved. I went back on the website to check the status and it said approved. It gave me an option to open a PDF file with the approval, which I did and then printed it out.
The problem I am having is I did not receive an application number and I have sent many email requests for this but never received a response. I have also sent 2 help requests and also heard nothing. When I tired to reapply as I was wondering if application hadn't gone through, it came up that I already had an application. I have no idea what is going on.
This website says the July 31 deadline to apply online has been postponed indefinitely.
I wouldn't worry, especially if your information is already in the system. Just make sure you have all the required documents.
