Ministry of Internal Affairs yet to receive funds to transform Ugandan passports into electronic readable

The ministry of internal affairs says it has not yet been provided adequate resources to undertake a project to transform Ugandan passports into electronic readable travel documents.

State minister for internal affairs James Baba says the global deadline that Uganda must meet is coming up next year warning that if the project is not undertaken, bearers of Ugandan passports will not be allowed to travel.

The minister was appearing before parliament’s committee on defense and internal affairs
