Entry requirements vary from country to country. Whether you are travelling to new and exciting areas or revisiting already explored regions, it is vital that you are prepared for your journey.
Valid passports or other travel documents acceptable to the Government of Kenya are required for all persons other than Kenya citizens wishing to enter Kenya. Travellers to Kenya should ensure that the validity of their passports is at least six months beyond the end of their intended stay. Kenyan immigration authorities require a minimum of one blank (unstamped) visa page in the passport to enter the country. If a traveller intends to leave the airport or pass through immigration, a visa is required. Effective 1st July 2011, most travellers including minor children (persons aged 16 years and below – who were previously exempted from visa payment and other formalities) require a valid visa to travel to Kenya. Whilst entry point passes for children are available for some citizens and passport holders, it is wise to obtain valid entry visas well in advance. Parents of minors who opt to obtain entry point visitor's passes will be issued with Single Journey visas and may encounter delays upon arrival.
