Arrest of Ugandan Citizen


If you are arrested while in Burundi or know a Ugandan citizen who is:

  1. Ask the prison authorities to notify the Uganda Embassy immediately. Authorities are required under international conventions to give notification within 24 hours of arrest.
  2. You may also wish to reach out to the Uganda Embassy to let us know of an arrest. Contact information for the embassy can be found here on the Embassy page.

NB. It is critical all Ugandan Citizens register with the Embassy immediately upon arrival in Burundi, and update their contact records regularly.
