According to an official of the High Commission of Uganda in Ottawa, a passport application requires the completion of Form A, called "Application for a Uganda Travel Document" and Form B, called "Citizenship Verification" (20 Dec. 2001). The completed forms must be accompanied by a fee, a birth certificate and four passport-size photos (ibid.). The identity of the applicant must be authenticated by a Recommender (ibid.). Processing normally takes a few days for both a new and renewed passport.

Please find attached a copy of Forms A and B.

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
