Applying for a visa is never the fun part of planning a trip. Through this blog, we want to help you understand this mandatory requirement so that you can easily complete the visa application process.

With our help, you’ll soon be gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or riding a canoe on Lake Bunyonyi, the second-deepest lake in Africa. Let’s get started.

Do Nigerian citizens need a visa to visit Uganda?

Nigerian citizens planning to visit Uganda must get a visa before traveling to the country.

There are different types of Ugandan eVisas available to Nigerians, depending on the purpose of your travel:

  • Ordinary/Tourist Visa: For those traveling to Uganda for tourism, business-related activities like meetings and conferences, medical treatment, or family visits. This single-entry visa is valid for 90 days from the day it's approved.

  • Multiple-Entry Visa: This visa is suitable for travelers who visit Uganda frequently. It can be issued for 6, 12, or 24 months but can’t be used for employment.

  • East Africa Tourist Visa: Designed for visitors who want to travel to Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda for tourism. This is a multiple-entry visa that’s valid for 90 days.

  • Diplomatic/Official Visa: This visa is for visitors traveling to Uganda on official business or for diplomatic duties.

  • Transit Visa: This visa is issued to visitors traveling through Uganda en route to a third or final destination. It's granted for a maximum of seven days.

How to apply for a Uganda Visa from Nigeria

Fill me in

Although we don’t handle Uganda Tourist Visa applications, we can provide the information you need to apply confidently.

To get a Uganda Visa from Nigeria, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Uganda Immigration Portal and click on “Start a new application.”

  2. Click “Accept” on the Disclaimer pop-up.

  3. Select the visa or permit type, category, and sub-category in the dropdown menus. Based on your selections, a list of required documents and the visa fee will appear at the bottom of the page. Gather the required documents.

  4. Complete the application form.

  5. Upload scanned copies of the required documents.

  6. Once you’re done, click “Submit.” Take note of the application ID, which can be used to track the status of your application. Depending on your nationality, you’ll be directed to a payment page for the visa.

  7. Wait for your visa application to be processed. If approved, you will receive an approval letter via email. Depending on your nationality, you’ll need to pay for the visa before receiving the approval letter.

  8. Print out the approval letter, which you will present at a Ugandan border control/immigration office, along with the payment receipt and your passport.

It’s important to note that the approval letter does not grant you automatic entry into the country. The final decision lies with the immigration officer at the Ugandan port of entry.
