Getting an e-Visa is easy, and you don’t have to visit an embassy or consulate. In July of 2016, the Republic of Uganda made e-Visas available to citizens of Estonia and many other countries. The process of getting an e-Visa is simpler and more convenient than a traditional visa, but it provides the same benefits.

You may not need an e-Visa just to catch a flight in Uganda, but it is an easy way to add an amazing experience to your trip. It’s a great option for Estonians who want a vacation or a tour of Uganda. The application for a Uganda e-Visa is secure and easy to complete, so get one here.

Types of Uganda e-Visas for Travelers from Estonia

If you’re traveling to Uganda from Estonia, you can choose from three different types of e-Visa, depending on why you’re traveling and how long you want to stay in Uganda.

Transit e-Visa

If you have a long layover, the Transit e-Visa is a great way to spend it. With this type of e-Visa, you can leave the airport, enter the country, and spend up to three days experiencing the beautiful sights before you head to your next destination. You can easily get a Transit e-Visa here.

Tourist e-Visa

If you want a fuller experience of Uganda, get a Tourist e-Visa instead. With this e-Visa, travelers from Estonia have 45 days to unwind, visit loved ones and friends in Uganda, and take in the beauty and depth of Uganda’s culture. Once you enter Uganda, you will have plenty of time to experience Uganda.

The Tourist e-Visa must be used within 90 days from when you arrive, and it lets you enter the country on time. After entering, you’ll have up to 45 days to spend as you choose before your departure. Get a Tourist E-Visa with our secure online application.

East African e-Visa

This is the ultimate e-Visa for the East African experience. With the East African e-Visa you can visit Rwanda and Kenya during your 45-day trip to Uganda. You’ll get to enter and exit Rwanda and Kenya as many times as you want to. Apply for an East African e-Visa here.
