The Kenyan government will take up to 72 hours to complete your visa application. We recommend that you apply for your e-visa as soon as possible. We can start submitting your application 90 days before your arrival in Kenya. However, the approval process may take longer depending on the number of applications received by the government.
To be eligible for a Kenyan e-visa, you must fulfill some requirements. You need to:
• Have a passport valid for at least six months after your date of departure from Kenya
• Have a computer with Internet access
• Be able to prove that you have the required funds to visit Kenya (US$500)
• Not be considered a security threat to Kenya
• Not be listed on the Kenyan government's terrorist list
• Not be involved in any illegal activities
• Not be pregnant
• Not have any medical conditions that would make travel difficult or dangerous
• Not be arrested for a crime committed while in Kenya
• Have a return flight scheduled after the expiration of your visa
Nigerian passport holders must obtain a visa in order to go to Kenya, but don't worry, the process is simple! The Kenyan e-visa takes two business days to complete, although it is suggested that you apply at least seven days before your trip to avoid stress and in case extra papers are necessary. All other travellers should consult with the nearest Kenyan embassy or consulate to find out what documents they require.
Kenya is one of the most affordable countries in Africa for tourists, and it's easy to get around once you know your way around Nairobi and Mombasa. Both cities have modern shopping centers and restaurants, as well as historic sites worth visiting. If you're looking to do some wildlife viewing, Kenya has many parks where you can see elephants, lions, and other animals free-range on their own terms.
All things considered, Kenya is an excellent choice if you're looking to travel through Africa for less than $100 per day. In fact, our lowest price of $80 was recorded in December 2013!
The only downside to traveling to Kenya is the weather. It can be hot and dry in northern Kenya while south of the equator there's always rain falling. The country sits on the equator, so the temperature will be consistent no matter which part of Kenya you're in.
For those who prefer not to drive themselves, there are plenty of ways to get around Kenya.
Applying for a Kenya eVisa is simple and quick. The eVisa saves time and is hassle-free because there is no need to submit documentation at an embassy or consulate or wait in line at the airport upon arrival. Because the visa application and accompanying paperwork are sent online, the entire procedure may be finished in within 15 minutes. You do not need a representative to apply on your behalf.
You can apply for a visa at www.evisa.go.ke. This website offers multiple methods of payment, including credit card. There is also an option to pay by SMS. It's easy and convenient! However, it is important to note that the visa office opens daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Kenyan time).
At the Kenyan port of entry, immigration officers will ask to see your passport and form I-515, which is included with your visa application package. If approved, you will receive a stamp in your passport indicating that you are permitted to enter Kenya for a maximum stay of 90 days.
If you require a long-stay visa, we recommend applying in advance as they tend to run out quickly!
