The process of transferring a motor vehicle / cycle and any others related in Uganda is the work of the URA, a government established body which handles everything related to taxation for example collecting of government revenues. Previously, everything used to be done by hand other than being automated but after the scrapping of the manual processes and the introduction of the e-Tax (Electronic Taxes), everything was automated and so to the vehicle transfers.
And currently, anyone regardless of where he or she is located can be able to start the entire process while at home or office or even on the go and below are the procedures of the motor transfer process. Check here for Absentee Motor vehicle transfers.
