Visa on Arrival: Uganda Selects Gemalto Visa Coesys
Gemalto is supplying Uganda's Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control (DCIC) with its Coesys Visa Management that combines swift issuance of all visas and permits with biometric enrollment upon arrival.
The new scheme allows DCIC to manage the entire visa life cycle from application to issuance, helping Uganda to achieve its goals of enhancing travel and national security to protect traveler's identity.
This turnkey solution incorporates a convenient online portal to apply for visas and permits at any time prior to travel.
Legitimate visitors receive their Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) by email. Upon arrival in Uganda, visitors get their visas after ETA check, verification of passports and the collection of their biometric data.
Launched on July 1st 2016, the new online visa portal significantly improves the experience of traveling to Uganda and support the country's growing business and tourism sectors.
With increased migration across East Africa, Ugandan authorities can ensure that visas are issued to bona fide applicants.
