With the new membership card, visitors can now access the American Center and Education USA Advising Center without an appointment during open hours. Along with the new membership card, visitors must present one additional form of photo identification, such as a passport or student identity card.
You will still need to call or e-mail one day in advance to make an appointment, if you:
- Wish to become a member,
- Have already registered but not yet collected the new membership card, or
- Have an old membership card that is handwritten, not typed
- Need to speak to the EducationUSA Adviser
If you have an old membership card that is typed, you do not need to make an appointment for your next visit; however, you will be asked to register again to receive a new membership card.
To register, visitors need to submit one passport photo along with the membership form.
The IRC is open Monday to Thursday from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM and Friday from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM. It is closed on Wednesdays and U.S. and Ugandan holidays.
