Shipping to Uganda with Amazon is still a can or cannot situation.
Does Amazon ship to Uganda? —Yes Amazon ships some items to Uganda, including much of its clothing and home decor, and No, when you try to buy more valuable products like computers and other electronics. This means Amazon ships some items to Uganda, but not everything.
In this article, we have two suggested ways on how you could go about it
Method 1: Buy directly from Amazon.com
- First, you must sign up with Amazon.
- Next, you’ll need to set up a “1-click address” for Uganda.
—To set this up, visit the “manage addresses” section located in the “your account” dropdown. After inputting your Uganda address, Amazon will only display items that can ship to your country
After that, you can directly search for your favorite items with Amazon’s search portal that only shows you items that can be shipped to your current address and see if they are eligible to ship to Uganda.
This process saves time and the frustration you would when your products are not eligible to be shipped from Amazon to Uganda.

Method 2: Use a U.S. Shipping forwarder.
This option tends to be a little more expensive but it enables you to buy any product that Amazon won’t ship directly to Uganda.
First, you’ll need to open an account with a package forwarder, who will accept your Amazon purchases at their warehouse in the USA and forward them on to you.
- Sign Up For A Shipping Forwader
—For Uganda customers, our recommendation is MyUS.com because we’ve shipped more than 1,000 packages with six different package forwarders and MyUS has the lowest rates, is tax-free, and is the most popular U.S. shipping forwarder by far. Signing up is easy, plus you can see exactly how much your shipment will cost before shipping anything to Rwanda.
- Buy Your Amazon Product
Once you’ve set up your U.S. shipping address, you’re ready to make your Amazon purchase and get it shipped to Rwanda. Just visit the Amazon website, use your MyUS address and place your order!
Using our two options, you can buy and ship anything sold on Amazon.com’s United States of America website to Uganda. Amazon.com’s product lines available on its website include many media (books, DVDs, music CDs, videotapes, and software), apparel, baby products, consumer electronics, beauty products, gourmet food, groceries, health and personal-care items, industrial & scientific supplies, kitchen items, jewelry, watches, lawn and garden items, musical instruments, sporting goods, tools, automotive items, and toys & games.
