Expats in Uganda

Your Practical Guide to settling and living in Uganda


  • You should be aware that to live legally in Uganda, nationals of other countries should hold a residence document (chapter three).
  • Employing someone who is living illegally in Uganda can mean very stiff fines. You are running the risk of being reported (this does happen!) or of police checks in various public places where any person you employ is likely to be.

Looking for Help

  • Word of mouth between neighbours, a friend is often the system that works the best.
