The Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control (DCIC) Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Uganda would like to inform all our esteemed clients of a scam website https://www.evisaforuganda.com/index which on top of fraudulently claiming to be an application portal for electronic visas ( e-Visas ) to Uganda, goes on to charge applicants way beyond the official fees charged on our official e visa portal www.visas.immigration.go.ug.

The Official Website, www.visas.immigration.go.ug provides for applications for different Visas namely:

Diplomatic visa for Diplomatic and Official Passport Holders at (0.0 USD) , Uganda Ordinary/Tourist Visa at (50 USD), East Africa Tourist Visa at (100 USD), Transit at (50 USD) and Multiple-Entry Visas at (100 USD ) for six and twelve months and (150 USD) for 24 months.

Other facilities on the official site include Entry/work Permits, Dependant Passes, Student Passes, Special Passes and Certificates of Residence. And we are in the process of including different forms of Citizenship.

This unofficial website is designed to confuse clients and appear as though it is legitimate yet its sole purpose is to fleece unsuspecting clients and must thus be avoided. While the unofficial site has three steps and has No official logo, the genuine official application site has the DCIC Logo and Uganda Court of Arms and is done in four Steps which are: Selecting the Application type; Fill the form; Add documents and Submit your application.

Our esteemed Clients are henceforth notified to desist from submitting any application through the said un authorized scam website. Please restrict submissions of your applications using the Official Electronic Visa Application Portal for the Republic of Uganda which is www.visas.immigration.go.ug. The Government of Uganda SHALL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE for any loss, monetary or otherwise accruing from using the said fraudulent website.
