Authentication of documents

The Embassy authenticates official documents issued by recognized institutions in Uganda for use in the United States. These include:

1. Birth Certificates
2. Passports
3. Academic certificates and transcripts
4. Marriage certificates

Holders of the documents must present the following:

i) Original document bearing the stamp and signature of issuing institution
ii) Photocopies of the document (depending on the number of copies required)
iii) Authentication fee of $50 per set of documents. A set consists of one copy of each of the documents. 

Note: The Embassy will take time to verify the authenticity of the document with the issuing institution before endorsing it. This may cause delays in processing the documents. Bearers of forged documents will be handed over to the authorities.
