If not on the web you can buy the card on arrival (latest update indicate that there are no Visas issued on arrival. This is temporary and it’s due to Covid-19. Don’t delay to apply online).

At 100 USD you get one for use. This card grants entry to all these three countries named Uganda, Rwanda, DR Congo and Kenya.
Other categories include the one for diplomats, transit, and multiple entry. The transit paper allows a traveler to pass through the international zone of an airport without entry into the nation’s territory.
The charge for a transit permit is $50 and the rates for multiple entries are 100 USD for 6 & 12 months and 200 US dollars for 24 months.

For a transit card, on the above requirements, you add on a letter that states the transit reason and the destination country. For the East African Visa, the travel itinerary and return flight ticket are needed.
