Dear Jacqueline,

entry of foreigners into Uganda is the preserve of the Directorate of Immigration and Citizenship Control. His/her access to Uganda is by permission of the Ministry of Internal Affairs which will issue a Uganda visa to that individual.

If the individual is from a country in which Uganda has an Embassy and you have reason to believe that this person poses a danger to citizens of Uganda, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs can request the Uganda Embassy in the country of origin of that indvidual to do a background check using credible information that YOU have provided. This will only be done if you have reason to believe that the individual's movements pose a threat to Uganda's National Security, in which case we advise you to alert the Ministry of Internal Affairs as well.

Please bear in mind that Embassies to not provide the services of private investigators. If the individual poses a threat to you as a person, we advise that you lodge a police complaint against him/her or hire a private investigator to do find out more on your behalf.

I hope I have answered your question satisfactorily, kindly revert if you have further questions.
