Ugandans will now have to apply for passports only through digital means as the manual application process has been phased out. The government recently activated the e-application portal which can be found on the website www.passports.go.ug.
Government launched the digital passport in 2018 to meet international standards.
Outgoing Minister for ICT Frank Tumwebaze said the launch of e-passports is a step forward towards fighting corruption.
When a person enters their details into the system, they are given a reference number, which they can then use to track their application.
