As of right now Uganda is now issuing the "EAST AFRICA TOURIST VISA" valid for multiple entries for Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda.

This is a legitimate three-country tourist visa making it easier and more convenient to go on a wide-ranging safari!

The visas cost only $110., which is far cheaper than buying all three (or even two) individually. The visa is valid for up to 90 days and is good for multiple entries of the three countries during those three months.

You must get the EATV from the country of first arrival. If you are flying from Europe to Nairobi then you would apply for the EATV through Kenya. If you are flying into Kampala or Entebbe you must apply for the visa from Uganda. If you are flying into Kigali then you apply at Rwanda.

Be warned, Tanzania is not part of this group and requires a Tanzanian visa for any entry.

Also, if you have an EATV and go to Tanzania, your visa becomes invalid and you will need another Kenyan visa to re-entry Kenya for a flight home out of Nairobi airport. This may be sold and issued at the border as you drive from Tanzania to Kenya. The full details are not yet available.
