Delta/KLM from US to Uganda - problem boarding w/out visa in hand?

Jump to last reply

Anyone flown from the US on Delta through Netherlands to UG?

I've read the Ugandan embassy website and the info on Delta's website. It says "Visa required ; except for Holders of normal passports issued to nationals of USA can obtain a visa on arrival. Fee: USD 50"

So based on that plus what I've read on tripadvisor I felt good but I just got an email from Delta saying a visa is required for our flight and we won't be able to board without it. I called and talked to a Delta agent; she looked up what I already saw on their website and said we "SHOULD" be fine. I just don't like the word should. Is there any reason a gate agent would not interpret it correctly and we'd get screwed & not allowed to fly?

Is it worth peace of mind to go ahead and get a visa in advance?
