ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING DEADLINE OF APPLICATION FOR EAC E-PASSPORTS

To all Ugandans:
You may have seen a notification circulating on social media regarding the January 2021 deadline for the expiry of Ugandan Machine Readable Passports.
This deadline was agreed upon by the East African Community (EAC) Heads of State summit, and binds all five EAC States.
Nevertheless, before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, stakeholder consultations were underway about the viability of the deadline. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted this process considerably.
A number of you have raised concerns at this notification and the difficulties involved in meeting this deadline during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The general public is therefore advised that a new deadline will be announced after appropriate stakeholder views have been harmonised.
You are still strongly advised to continue renewing your passports while following COVID-19 safety protocols, to avoid inconveniences of processing last-minute applications.
For more details, please contact us on [email protected] or [email protected] www.mia.go.ug & or Tel +256752451811

Jacob Siminyu
Spokesperson Ministry of Internal Affairs.

*UGANDANS STRANDED IN USA RETURN HOME*

276 Ugandans and Uganda residents and dependent pass holders have, today Friday July 17th departed Dulles International Airport, Washington, DC, bound for Entebbe International Airport, from on Ethiopian Airlines.

The group was seen off by the Ambassador of Uganda to the USA, South America and the Caribbean, H.E. Mull Sebujja Katende who was flanked by Deputy Chief of Mission, Amb. Santa Mary Laker-Kinyera and Permanent Representative of Uganda to the United Nations, Amb. Adonia Ayebare.

A second group of 88 passengers will depart from Canada, South America, and the Caribbean tomorrow 18th July 2020 transiting in Addis Ababa, arriving in Entebbe on 19th July 2020.

The travellers from the US and Caribbean included Ugandans and legal residents and their dependents, affected by the March 23rd closure of Entebbe Airport due to COVID-19 concerns.

The majority of passengers are holders of US visitors visas, F1 and J1 student and research fellow visas and Ugandan resident permit holders who were unable to travel back to Uganda when the airport was closed. The Uganda Embassies in North America also registered a number of stranded Ugandans who had traveled for medical reasons.

Given the closure of numerous borders in both North and South America due to COVID-19 concerns and visa limitations of several of the affected persons it was necessary to create multiple departure locations, to ensure that everyone who could do so was afforded an opportunity to return.

Amb. Katende explained that the registration and repatriation process, though complex, due to the size of the area of accreditation, had been made possible by the seamless coordination and teamwork of the staff at the three Embassies of Uganda in Washington, DC, New York and Ottawa. He paid tribute to his colleagues Amb. Adonia Ayebare (PR New York) and Amb. Joy Ruth Acheng (Ottawa), the management of Ethiopian Airlines and Mr. Mukesh Sahu of Satguru Travel Solutions for their tireless efforts to reach out and provide guidance to the stranded Ugandans.

He thanked the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Health for putting in place clear guidelines and standard operating procedures to ensure that travellers do not just return to Uganda but ensured that they do so safely.

The flight arrives in Entebbe on Saturday July 18th 2020.
