    Hi Unaa. I just cane across your website and the upcoming convention. I am so excited about being part of it but wondering, what does it take to attend the conference? Both your requurements and those of the embassy to be able to get a visa?

    I wish i could have all the necessary information as soon as possible so that i try my luck in booking an intervew in advance because as far as i know the entire 2023 is fully booked for intervews. But i would like to try my luck incase some people cancel their bookings.

    I will be very greatful for your prompt detailed response.

    Thank you.
    Happy New Year Unaa fraternity

    i work for a company and its my time for holiday, they want to sponsor me for the convention, does the invitation name come in the company name or my personal name.
    i want it in the company name, is that possible.

    • unaa-admin

      10 Feb 2023 - 12:20

      The invitation comes in your name as the embassy doesnt issue the visa to a company.
      Bute reference is made to your company in the letter.

      Hello UNNA, Hope all is well, I would like to attend UNAA 2023 but I need a group from Kampala through which I can process a Visa b’se processing it alone is challanging to me but may make it abit easy if I get a group. So I would like if possible share with me some group coordinator you know of whose who are going to attend from Kampala. so that I get in join them. But for sure I want to attend this convention. Thank you.

      • UNAA

        20 Apr 2023 - 03:28

        Sorry but UNAA doesnt offer such facilitation and that would be considered immigration fraud. Please ensure you use the correct channels when dealing with immigration related issues.
        Good luck in your endeavors and feel free to still reach out if you need further assistance.
