About Us

The Embassy of the Republic of Uganda in Beijing is accredited to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Kingdom of Cambodia, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Lao People’s Democratic Republic.

The Embassy has a multi-faceted objective of strengthening Uganda’s bilateral relations with the People’s Republic of China and the accredited countries; co-ordinate, promote and protect the interests of Uganda and her citizens; and meaningfully contribute to the socio-economic progress and prosperity of Uganda among others.

The Embassy, in this regard, works hand-in-hand with Uganda’s Honorary Consuls in the various countries under its accreditation to strengthen ties, facilitate trade, investment and goodwill between the two sides.

The Embassy provides an effective one-stop consular service delivery to Ugandans in China and other countries of accreditation.
