THE UGANDA CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION CONTROL BILL, 1998
THE MINISTER OF INTERNAL AFFAIRS (Maj. Butime Tom): Mr. Speaker, I beg to move that the Uganda Citizenship and Immigration Control Bill, 1998, be read the second time.
In tabling this Bill, its purpose is to draw the following:
This Bill, as I have already said, is to be cited as the Uganda Citizenship and Immigration Control Act, 1998. When it is enacted into law, it is intended to repeal the substantive laws which regulate entry, exit and residence of aliens in the country, and acquisition of citizenship, passports and other travel documents.
The legislation is intended to further provide for citizenship registration and the subsequent acquisition of national identity cards.
