Passports and Visas

Tourist visas are not required in Rwanda for stays shorter than 90 days. For Uganda, a single-entry, three-month tourist visa (US$50) can be obtained from the Uganda Embassy in Washington, D.C., or the Uganda Mission to the U.N. in New York City. You will need to mail in an application form, two passport-size photos, and the correct visa fee two months before travel. Processing time is three working days. Although not recommended, you can also secure a visa at Entebbe International Airport, where you must pay in cash. For both countries, your passport must be valid for six months from the date of intended travel and contain at least one blank page.
