Answer: You first get a visitors Visa at the airport. Then you proceed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs who will issue a work permit. After submitting the required information.
a) Original, signed passport with at least 6 months of remaining validity.
b) Passport-type photographs: 2
c) Yellow Fever Vaccination. Copy of international Certificate of Vaccination for Yellow Fever.
d) Business Letter. A business letter from either the sending company in your country or sponsoring company in Uganda. The letter should be printed on company letterhead stationery, addressed to the Embassy of Uganda, and signed by a senior manager (an equivalent to Vice-President or above).
Business letters from your country companies should adhere to the following guidelines:
Briefly introduce the applicant (please specify employment status/position held in the company by applicant).
State the nature of the business to be conducted (ie. business meetings, contract negotiations, etc.) and the names and addresses of companies to be contacted in Uganda.
Specify the type and desired validity of the visa (ie. one year multiple entry business visa).
Guarantee of sufficient funds for travel.
You cannot get a Uganda working Visa upon arrival.
