Uganda’s E-visa.

Picture from

The E-visa platform was commemorated on July 1st 2016 during the start of a busy traveller season. I believe one of the major reasons is to ease on the process.
Here is some of the information you need to know about the about the E-visa.
I’m going concentrate on specific types of visa during my explanations. These are the type of visa that almost any adventurer tourist would want.
The East Africa Tourist Visa.
Multiple entry visa
Ordinary visa.

You can apply for one of these visas to fulfill your adventure ambitions using the E-visa platform:

The East Africa Tourist visa:
The East Africa tourist visa allows a tourist to travel between the Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda. The holder of the visa normally moves from the country that issued the visa, let say Uganda, to Kenya and Rwanda in this case without applying for domestic visa. This is convenient for those that come to do activities that span among these countries. For example some of the itineraries are designed such that you do gorilla trekking in both Rwanda and Uganda. In such a case, this visa would suite that appropriate situation.

To apply for this visa using the Uganda’s E-visa platform:
You shall need the following documents.

A copy of the passport (Bio-data page), travel itinerary, copy of the recent passport size photograph, Vaccination certificate ( Yellow fever), and a return ticket.
The fee for such a visa is $100.

Ordinary visa-single entry visa.
Those who plan on doing activities within the Ugandan border, you can apply for an ordinary visa, single entry visa.

The documents required for such a visa are:
A copy of the passport (Bio-data page), Vaccination certificate (Yellow fever),and Copy of the recent passport size photograph. The fee for such a visa is $50.

Multiple entry-visas.
The multi-entry visa suits those who feel like entering the country several times during the span of the visa. You can come in and go out and then in and out repeatedly as long as the visa is still valid.
The documents required are:

A copy of the passport (Bio-data page), Vaccination certificate( Yellow fever),and Copy of the recent passport size photograph, Police clearance from Interpol or home country, Recommendation letters from 2 referees in Uganda, and a cover letter stating reasons for multiple entry. The fee for such a visa is $100.

After submission of all those required documents,
You shall receive a notification with an application Number which you shall use to track the application.
 You shall receive an email notification detailing the steps to be taken, with an attachment of the e-visa approval to travel. The attachment should be printed and presented to Immigration Officers as proof that the e-visa was approved.

In case the application is deferred, it can be sent back for amendment by the applicant or more documents requested by the processing Immigration Officer
If you are successful with your visa, you shall pay for the visas at the Points of Entry (The Uganda border of entry)

We at gorilla tour booking safaris,, greatly encourage those who are going to travel with us to use the e-visa because of its efficiency.
