The move is aimed at promoting the tourism sector as Uganda implements a newly introduced e-visa which requires visitors to apply online and receive an approval notification prior to travel. Visas are then issued on arrival. This reduction applies to single entry (tourist) visas only.
Hon. Frank Tumwebaze, Minister of ICT and National Guidance stated “Uganda listens carefully to stakeholders – especially in the tourism sector – and we respond. We have made this decision so that we enable more tourist to enjoy holidays, leisure and safaris in our beautiful country at a much lower cost than most other places in the world”.
Tim Henshall, representative for Uganda Tourism in the UK said “This is a great decision by Uganda in moving towards a more competitive visa rate, and ultimately making it easier and cheaper for tourists to visit the country. As well as their famous mountain gorillas, Uganda offer great safaris, fantastic birding, world class hiking stunning scenery and fascinating cultures.”.
