Despite being a tropical paradise on its own, there are citizens of the country who like to travel as well, as it is to be expected. After all, the world is much too large for one to remain in one place for the entirety of one’s life, especially when it can be helped.
There are many things that might prevent one from traveling, including visa problems and money problems and, luckily for Ugandans interested in traveling, this article aims at solving one of those problems.
All over the world, there are countries where a person armed with a Ugandan passport can travel to, without needing to purchase a passport before leaving. It is indeed a sad but very factual reality that a large number of Ugandans are not aware that there are countries worldwide that they can travel to without needing to get a visa. Once they have their passport and are able to pay for the ticket for the journey, they are good to go.
The way it works is, most of these visa-free countries have attached a time frame to the visa-free offer and within that time, any visiting Ugandan can stay without a visa, however, once the time allocated is up, the person would either need to get a visa, or simply return to his or her home country.
If one were to decide to stay longer than is allowed by the visa-free offer, then one would need to get a visa to make that decision legal and admissible.
This article aims at listing and to an extent, discussing some of those countries where a Ugandan can travel to without a visa and not be breaking the law. As much as possible, the countries are going to be placed under the continent in which they can be found.
