Citizens of Uganda must apply for a visitor's visa.

If you plan to visit more than one Schengen country in the course of one trip, or if you plan several separate trips within a period of two months, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your main destination based on the length of your stay, or the purpose of stay.

If you plan to visit several Schengen countries and the main destination cannot be determined, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your first point of entry to the Schengen area.

FRAUD ALERT
All visa applicants are urged to exercise caution when/if they receive e-mail messages after submission of their applications. It has come to our attention that there are some fraudulent entities sending scam e-mails instructing recipients to contact them and send money to facilitate the visa handling process.

Kindly note that the visa processing fee (60 euro) is paid ONLY online using a bank card. VFS Global will charge an additional service fee that has to be paid in cash at the VFS center when submitting the application. A separate receipt will be handed out by VFS for this.

If you receive any e-mail soliciting for payment of extra fees, please do not pursue this.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should money be sent to any address.
