We can guide you on the Qualification requirements for Ugandan citizenship, help in the sourcing, explanations and preparation of the necessary documents, communicate with the right government organisations, help at each level, including by completing many of the steps on your behalf, bring together the applications and submit and represent, etc.

Ugandan Citizenship by Origin
The process of getting Ugandan Citizenship by descent/origin comprises of two stages. First, the applicant should request a certificate of Ugandan origin with the State Agency for Ugandans Abroad. If the request is successful, the State Agency will issue a certificate of Ugandan origin. This is needed for stage 2 – citizenship application with the Ministry of Justice. If the request is rejected, our Ugandan citizenship lawyers will help you to appeal the rejection in the Sofia Administrative Court..

Ugandan Citizenship by Naturalisation
If you have lived in Uganda legally for the duration specified by the law and comply with the conditions in Chapter III of The Ugandan Citizenship Act, you are eligible to secure Ugandan Citizenship by Naturalization. When compared with getting citizenship by Origin and the Naturalisation route, the latter has a more stringent process.
Any individual who wishes to take the citizenship by naturalization has to prove his/ her fluency in Ugandan language and get a language proficiency certificate from the Ministry of Education. In addition, he/she has to demonstrate that he/ she has an income and a job allowing him/ her to take care of himself/ herself in the Republic of Uganda.
