How to get a UBA Visa Card?
In order to get a UBA Visa card, you need to visit any of the bank branches e.g William street, Kabalagala, etc in Uganda, and open up a prepaid or savings or any other supported account. You will then apply for a card (if you didn’t choose the prepaid account) and it will be issued to you within a few hours on the same day or the next.

Also, your online account will be created and account login details provided including username and password to use when accessing your account online. Besides, the account opening fees, there are no other fees associated apart from the known bank charges and transaction fees.
UBA Senegal and the ongoing scam.
Senegal is one of the countries where the United Bank of Africa operates. UBA being known for offering instant VISA and MasterCard, scammers are currently targeting many people from the different countries purporting to be staff of UBA.
The ongoing scam has led many people to lose a few dollars in the name of ATM VISA verification. Scammers send “ATM Cards” and ask recipients to send money via western union in order to mail them PIN’s so as to use the cards.
If you have not yet fallen victim, I advise you to inquire with any nearest UBA bank branch and verify whether the ATM you received was issued by them or not. Otherwise, you may fall victim and your money will be taken for nothing.
