Shipping to Uganda
Shipping to the Republic of Uganda is fairly easy, although the Customs process is a bit sluggish. You should actually assume that your parcels will get stuck in Customs for some time (any where from a few days to a few weeks!) so that you can ship accordingly. With these types of common delays in mind, it is best not ship anything that is of a special time importance or that is perishable as it may go bad before it even sees the light of day outside the shelves in the Customs offices. To help minimize these delays, try to have your appropriate paperwork filled out before shipping.
