    IMPORTANT:

    NOTE: Due to COVID19, the Uganda government requires all entrants to have a certificate that shows they tested negative to COVID-19 in the past 72 hours. With this, there's no mandatory quarantine!

    How to visit Uganda:
    Our nearest airport is Entebbe Airport and we normally pick our volunteers here at anytime of arrival.
    Type of Visa: we recommend that you apply for a TOURIST VISA, unless you’re planning to spend more than 3 months. Sometimes, if you want to apply as a volunteer, it could be complicated. A tourist visa is a quickest way.
    Visa fees: Visa fee is $100 and this could be 3 months Visa. It could be paid on arrival at Entebbe airport but application should be made before you board.
    Others: Before you buy air ticket, make sure you have completed relevant medical checkups such as yellow fever shot, annual flu shot and any other according to your health. Some vaccinations could affect your travel dates.
    A yellow fever shot and certificate is mandatory for Ugandan visitors.

    Search Ugandan visa application portal online ( make sure the url end with .go.ug)

    Inform us once you have booked your flights so we can arrange for the pickup.

    In addition; We provide our volunteers with free-time to explore site around us for free. This includes a tour to Kampala, and this gives you an opportunity to see the Uganda capital city and tourist places around, we enjoy the Kampala-nights together everyday, village tours and exchanges with locals (village gossips...lol). Attending live music bands every weekend where our volunteers are always given a chance to sing or mime your favorite song live, attending traditional functions such as weddings and introductions.........
