If you have all of the following documents, VISA Thing will help you get an E-visa.

Uganda issues Electronic Visas, also known as e-visas, for a variety of visa categories for Bangladeshi nationals traveling for a short-term visit. Uganda e-visa is a conditional authorization granted by the central Immigration authority to a foreigner to enter, remain within, or leave the territory before the authorization’s validity expires.

The Uganda e-visa allows applicants to apply online with scanned copies of their documents. Only a few documents have the visa processed quickly and receive the visa online in a PDF/Doc file via email. Although the Uganda e-visa is a valid visa permit, it does not guarantee the right to enter Ugandan territory. The immigration authority retains the final authority to grant entry permission.
