Bhutanese visitors must apply for an online visa before entering Uganda. This is because Bhutan is not among the countries for Uganda visa-free. The Government of Uganda introduced the electronic visa system to boost tourism and business sectors and expedite the visa application process, bypassing the need to visit the Uganda Immigration Department in person.
The electronic visa simplifies the process of obtaining a Ugandan visa for Bhutanese travelers. Applicants from Bhutan often receive their e-visas within three business days after submitting the necessary documents and visa application forms. For comprehensive information about visa prerequisites for Bhutanese citizens, please consult our visa requirements guide.
