Kenya Visa Information

Updated: 28th September 2023

Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from Kenya.

African countries are in a continual state of political flux and visa requirements can change overnight. It is essential that you check visa requirements of every country you will be visiting in Africa with the local embassy, consulate or a reputable visa handling company for the most up to date visa information before you travel.

Vaccination Certificates: Anyone travelling from a Yellow Fever infected country may be required to show Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate upon arrival to be granted entry. Entry and exit requirements may be announced and altered at short notice so it is essential you check these requirements before you travel.

Kenya Visa Requirements

Most nationalities, including UK, USA, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand passport holders, require a visa to enter Kenya. Apply for a Kenya e-visa online in advance, which can take up to 7 working days to process.
