I wish to warmly welcome you to the website of Uganda High Commission in Pretoria, City of Tshwane in Gauteng Province, South Africa. 

The role of the Uganda High Commission in Pretoria is to protect the interests of Uganda and Ugandan nationals, within the limits permitted by international law; negotiating with the Governments of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and the Royal Kingdoms of Lesotho and Swaziland, as directed by the Government of Uganda; ascertaining by lawful means conditions and developments in these sovereign countries, and reporting thereon to the Government of Uganda; promoting friendly relations between Uganda and these countries, and developing economic, cultural and scientific relations between Uganda, on one hand, these countries, on the other.

One of the core responsibilities of the Uganda High Commission in Pretoria is to deliver the best possible counsel to Ugandan citizens, who find themselves in an emergency situation in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and the Royal Kingdoms of Lesotho and Swaziland,  or are in need of the High Commission’s assistance for other reasons. Ugandan citizens are encouraged to invest in Uganda.

There are two Honorary Consulates of Uganda in Southern Africa, namely in the Republic of Botswana and in the Royal Kingdom of Swaziland.

Uganda High Commission in Pretoria is staffed by a team of five competent Foreign Service Officers, supported by a team of locally recruited staff. We are a team because we respect each other, while serving the Republic of Uganda.
