Do Australian citizens need a visa to Uganda?

Australia is not in the list of Uganda visa free, so Australian citizens must apply for a visa to enter Uganda. Uganda is incredibly fortunate to have wonderful tourism attractions that are widely dispersed across all national parks. This is the perfect tourist destination for Australian citizens to visit this country.

Fortunately, since July 2016, Uganda has approved the system online for applying an e-visa for travelers all around the world. E-visa is an electronic document that is approved by the Uganda government to give permission for Australian travelers to enter this country legally. With the help of e-visa, Australian visitors can travel to Uganda conveniently and easily without waiting for a face-to-face interview with the Embassies and Consulates. However, Australian citizens can apply for e-visa for tourism and transit purposes only. Others who want to travel to engage in business activities or academic study, must go to the Uganda Embassy to request for a regular visa.

The process of applying for an e-visa is entirely online and it only takes under 20 minutes to complete the form. With just a smartphone, Australian citizens can have their own e-visa. After applying, the e-visa result will be sent to your email address within 3 working days.
