As a foreign tourist traveling to Uganda, the process of getting a visa is not difficult.

Visas in Uganda can be obtained in two main ways.
Visa on Arrival

Certain countries are exempted from having a visa for a maximum of 3 months when visiting Uganda. They include the following.
Holders of either service or diplomatic passports issued by Namibia, India, Italy, or South Africa also do not need a visa for up to 3 months.
