In June 2016, The Republic of Uganda launched the e-Visa. It must be obtained before entering the country. All travelers transiting through Uganda for a period not exceeding 48 hours are eligible to apply for the visa. Applicants are required to have a confirmed onward booking from Uganda to a third country or other acceptable plans to depart Uganda within 48 hours of arrival.

Travelers who use the Transit e-Visa program apply, pay a fee online and receive their electronic visa online before traveling to Uganda. The e-Visa is an official document permitting entry into and travel within Uganda. Applicants will receive their visas via email, after filling the application form with the necessary information and once the online credit card payment is completed.
