Uganda Work Permit
by: Business Consultant

The qualifications for a work permit usually depends on what sort of work you're going to do. If you're going to be a consultant in a certain institution or private Company, then such a company should forward your request. But in most cases to get a permit you must be a professional and not just a casual worker.
