Kenya has recently launched eCitizen, an easy-to-use and efficient e-visa service, where all nationals requiring a visa can log onto the online portal and apply for their Kenya entry visa before travel. This process will become compulsory from 01 September 2015, however there will be a two month changeover process until the end of August 2015. During this transition process, travellers will still have the option of purchasing their visa upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Thereafter, nationals will not be allowed to purchase visas when landing in Kenya.
The below nationals are exempt from having to obtain an entry visa to Kenya. Should your country not be listed below, you will need to make use of the new e-visa service. For more information on how to apply and whether or not you require an entry visa, please visit the portal’s query page here.
