The Uganda Embassy in Berlin has been equipped with the e-immigration system that will now make it possible for visa applicants to electronically personalize visas in Berlin.

The Government of Uganda introduced an online visa/permit application system with effect from 1st July 2016. All persons intending to travel to Uganda for holiday, tourism, business, study, visit, and/or medical are required to apply and obtain a visa online.

Mr. Anthony Oliam, Immigration Officer, said that once an application is submitted it will be studied by an Immigration Officer (or Embassy Consular Officer) who may or may not ask for additional information.

Upon submission, one receives a notification with an application number which he/she can use to track the application. The decision taken on the application will be sent electronically through the email provided by the applicant. If approved, an approval letter will be sent as an attachment to the email provided.

The applicant is then required to print it out and present it together with a valid passport /travel document of not less than 6 months validity at the port of entry.

This travel authorization does not guarantee entry into Uganda. Travellers will be subjected to secondary verification where necessary before personalization.
