Welcome to the German Embassy Kampala
"Herzlich Willkommen" to the German Embassy! In Uganda you would probably say "Tukusanyukidde", "Apwoyo bino" or "Karibu".
On our Website, we provide information on Germany, German - Ugandan relations, the activities of German Institutions in Uganda as well as the services of the Embassy for Ugandan and German citizens.
Please study the following information on the extended opening hours at the visa section of the German Embassy Kampala carefully.
Extended opening hours
Germany celebrated the 25th anniversary of her reunification on 3rd October. In Kampala, the German Ambassador held a reception commemorating the anniversary at his residence two days earlier, on 1st October 2015. It was a big event that focused on reminding the guests of the gruesome time of separation and the brutality of the Berlin wall. The guests were impressed by the imitation of the Berlin wall, enjoyed great music performances, food and drinks, and celebrated well into the night.
The Anniversary in Kampala
The reception that commemorated 25 years of German Unity at the residence of the German Ambassador Dr Peter Blomeyer was a great event that will linger in the memory of many of the guests. Photographer Oscar Kibuuka captured beautiful moments for the German Embassy.
To land a hit in Uganda’s music scene is difficult enough. To do so as a German singing in the local tongue Luganda has never been heard of, before Deena tried it and succeeded. The Embassy staff wanted to find out more about the young woman who spontaneously performed her first Luganda song in one of Kampala’s local bars, stunning the audience. Deena spent her gap year in Rwanda, has travelled a lot in East-Africa and came to Kampala in early 2013.
On 2nd September, Charge d’affaires a.i. Petra Kochendörfer, visited Uganda Martyrs University for the final Handover Ceremony of the Student Training for Entrepreneurial Promotion (STEP). STEP was developed jointly by scientists of the Makerere University Business School in Kampala and Leuphana University Lüneburg (Germany). STEP is going to be integrated into the curriculum of the Uganda Martyrs University's Faculty of Business Administration and Management from the academic year 2015/2016 onwards.
Ball Games are popular among children in Uganda – as is possessing your own ball. This is a dream come true for the 2500 primary school children who participated in this year’s National Primary Schools and Special Needs Learners Ball Games in Mubende last weekend. Chargé d’affairs Ms Kochendörfer (third right) held the opening address at the games and later handed over the balls received with the support of the German Government together with The Commissioner for Physical Education and Sporst, Omara Apitta (right).
