Uganda E Visa for Antarctica Residents

Keep in mind: Your vacation may demand pre-planning and authorization from another government. Therefore, we suggest you not book any tickets, or accommodation before you acquire your approval or a permit. You should also examine carefully the visa requirements for your destination as well!

  • Transit visa (single-entry): This is given to Antarctican travelers entering Uganda's border before they can move to another country/ destination. Please remember that this visa allows up to 07 days in Uganda, and is not able to be extended.
  • e-Tourist visa (single-entry): If you travel to Uganda for the intention of pleasure, sightseeing, or personal enrichment. In Uganda, tourists are not entitled to work or do business. A tourist must hold a tourist visa to remain in Uganda for 90 days while undertaking their own adventures and expeditions throughout the kingdom of Uganda. Every tourist from Antarctica must get an Uganda tourist visa.
  • East Africa visa (multiple-entry): Similar to a tourist visa, however, the East Africa visa grants Antarctica residents more freedom to move between Uganda, Rwanda, and Kenya. And you can stay in these countries for 3 months (90 days) while holding this type of visa.
