Ugandan citizens wishing to apply for a passport, can now do so digitally.

The government activated the e-application portal after launching the digital passport at the end of 2018.

According to the Daily Monitor, the application process at the time remained tedious, with applicants making “endless trips to the long queues” at the Ministry of Internal Affairs Head office in Kampala.

“Applicants queued up as early as 7:00am so as to beat the numbers,” the newspaper reported.

“With the e-application portal now activated, that should change.”

The e-application portal, which has been a work in progress for a long time, is said to be user-friendly and information sensitive.

“We take precautions to protect applicant’s information from any loss or illegal usage, access and disclosure. All the applicant’s information is secured by safeguards with regards to sensitivity level of the information of the applicant,” the website’s Privacy Policy states.
