Travelling to Kenya / Entry Requirements
Update from 28th August 2023
- Travellers, unless exempted (see here) need a visa to enter Kenya. The visa must be obtained online using https://evisa.go.ke/ (takes 2-3 working days); the printed eVisa needs to be presented to the immigration officer at the port of entry. No visa on arrival will be issued. Children below 16 years don’t need their own eVisa.
- Travellers need a passport with at least 6 months validity.
- No proof of covid vaccination or negative PCR test needed. Travellers arriving at any port of entry into Kenya with flu-like symptoms will be required to fill the passenger locator form on the ‘jitenge’ platform: https://ears.health.go.ke/airline_registration/ . They will also be required to take a COVID-19 antigen test upon arrival at their own cost. Those who turn out positive for antigen test will be required to take a further COVID-19 PCR test at their own cost. Those with severe symptoms shall thereafter be allowed to isolate as per the prevailing isolation requirements for mild, moderate and severe disease.
- Yellow fever vaccination is required if travelling from a yellow fever endemic country, see here.
