The Government of Uganda through the Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control (DCIC) has issued a statement confirming 4th April 2022 as the deadline date for phasing out the old machine-readable passports.

The Embassy therfore reminds all Ugandans living in the People’s Republic of China to process their new e-passports ahead of the deadline date to avoid a last-minute stampede that may cause unnecessary delays.

Please refer to this link: PASSPORT RENEWAL AND E-PASSPORT APPLICATION PROCEDURE for guidelines on how to apply for the new passport.
