  1. Hello,

    I wish to obtain a personal postal address, how much is the application fee?

    1. Boxes are rented on a yearly basis. Regardless of who the renter is, I am sure you must pay. Unless you have an exception upon arrangment by the UPS. But this you can find out by visiting any of the UPS branches countrywide depending on your location.

  2. Thank you for this information.

    However I would like to enquire whether one can apply for the Box no. in Kampala while at upcountry office when he wants the number to be P.O. BOX xxxx, Kampala. If yes, how long does it take?

        1. Please cross check with the postal office where you want to rent from eg GPO, Clock Tower, Mengo and etc. All have different prices. Thanks for trusting Posta Uganda services.
