Come and pay on arrival easy and convinient
Okay, Thanks. I was just told that it hasn't been possible for a while, but I guess i'll just get it in the airport. Thanks for answer.
Sharon, axiti, where did you read that? I'm leaving in less than two weeks after reading all the time that you can obtain a visa on arrival and now I'm getting stressed!
That is just NOT correct.You can still get the visa at the airport when you arrive! Please relax ...to put your mind at rest, call the local Ugandan consulate or mission or the embassy in the UK or the US, you will be told that it is still possible to get the visa in Entebbe.Edited: 10 June 2018, 20:44
Ok thank you! I also asked my Ugandan guide because I was panicking. Also the immigration website still says that it is possible to get a tourist visa at every port of arrival.
I sent a message to the immigration office and they responded that to avoid any inconveniences I should apply online (not that there is time anyway, I'm leaving in 10 days). But they didn't say that it's not possible to get it on arrival. And their website says that it's still possible to get a tourist visa at every port of arrival. I don't know why it's so complicated. I hope they don't wake up one day and decide they don't give visas on arrival anymore...
I am in the same boat... I actually did apply for an e visa, but that was a week ago and my application is still "in progress". As part of the process, I had to scan a copy of my Yellow Fever vaccination. My yellow fever was done in 2002 and most countries, and authorities have accepted that Yellow Fever immunity (after one vaccination) is for life (rather than 10 years). I am hoping that Ugandan immigration got (and accepted) the memo, or I am stuck getting my visa on arrival and hope that I can explain to them that my vaccination is still valid.
Let us know how it all turned out!
That's the thing, I don't want to apply now and end up without an approved application and then have to ask for a visa on arrival anyway and pay double. They told me I have all the time to apply online but you applied last week and you don't have it yet, so...!
