East African Visa Beware!!!

Jump to last reply

We just returned from our trip to Uganda, Rwanda, and Zanzibar. All went well with the exception of the East African Visa. Upon our arrival to Entebbe, we requested the East African visa and paid the $100 fee. Our passports were stamped. We did not arrive until after midnight and had waited in line for at least an hour as several large jets arrived at the same time. We assumed that the officer gave us what we requested. Wrong! When we crossed the border to Rwanda, we discovered that the EA visa requires that a special sticker the size of a passport page be affixed which we did not have. Thus, we ended up paying $30 per person to get into Rwanda and another $100 per person to return to Uganda followed by $20 for a transit visa into Nairobi, all of which would have been avoided had the immigration officer done what we asked.
