Visas

A passport and visa are required for entry into Kenya. Good news for North America citizens, The Kenya Consulate wishes to inform all visa applicants of the introduction of a new electronic visa processing system (evisa http://evisa.go.ke/evisa.html ). This online visa application process is running concurrently with the Kenya Consulate offices but visas are also available at ports of entry upon arrival.  

  Single Entry:  allows guests to enter into Kenya once, However kindly note, a single entry Visa would allow re-entry to Kenya from any of the following East African countries - Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.  Cost - $50 USD per applicant

•  East Africa Visa - allows travel between Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda with the same multiple entry visas. The holder of the East Africa Tourist Visa shall enter the region from the country that issued the visa and move within two other countries without applying for another visa or paying another visa fee.   Cost - $100 USD per applicant

Exemption of Visa for children under 16 years - Effective 1st February 2016, children under 16 years of age accompanying their parents to Kenya will be exempted from paying visa fees.

NB: Please note that the possession of a Kenyan Visa is not the final authority to enter Kenya. The immigration officer at the port of entry may deny entry if the visitor is unable to fulfill the immigration requirements and if the entry and presence of such a person in Kenya would be contrary to national interests, even if such a person is in possession of a valid visa for Kenya. Since  visa requirements may change, it is advisable for visitors to check the current requirements through Kenya Tourist Offices, Kenyan Embassies or High Commissions in their countries before travelling to avoid embarrassment.
