Work Permit Instructions

WORK PERMITS CLASSIFICATION AND FEES

\r\n

The Mission does not process work permits. Application for work permits are processed by the Department of Immigration, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Kampala.

\r\n

Full payments for the entire duration of work permit must be paid up-front. A deposit equivalent to the cost of return airfare to the home country is required of foreign employees depending on the class of the work permit and must be paid to the Ministry of Internal Affairs. This deposit is refunded without interest, upon investor's/expatriate's departure from Uganda.

\r\n

For instance, a Class G permit costs US$75- per annum and so, an expatriate given 3 years will be required to pay US$225 up-front plus a security bond equivalent to the cost of a return airfare to the country of origin.
