Kenya Visa Information

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.

Please note that your anyone travelling from a Yellow Fever infected are must provide a Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate upon arrival in Kenya in order to be granted entry.

Kenya Visa Requirements

South African passport holders do not require a visa for Kenya. Most nationalities, including UK, USA, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand passport holders, require a visa to enter Kenya. You can apply for a Kenya e-visa online in advance, which can take up to 7 working days to process, or get a visa on arrival at the airport. We recommend getting your visa in advance to avoid the long queues at the airport.

If you are a passport holder of another nationality, check Project Visa for more information on visa requirements for Kenya.

East Africa Tourist Visa

If you are planning on also visiting Uganda and/or Rwanda when travelling to Kenya then you can apply for an East Africa Tourist Visa which will cover all three countries and costs USD $100. The visa allows multiple entry into these countries and is valid for 90 days. It can be applied for in advance at the Kenyan Embassy or upon arrival at Nairobi International Airport.
