| How to obtain a visa ? *
E-Visa online procedure : it is the simplest and the fastest way to get your visa. Citizens of the eligible nationalities (see above) can, within a few minutes, complete their application and pay their visa fees on the dedicated website. Only standard single entry visas, transit visas and courtesy visas are eligible for e-visa. With your scanned photo, your passport and your credit card you can obtain your visa.
Visa on arrival: if you have not had the time or opportunity to obtain your visa online, you can complete these formalities upon arrival at JKIA. Travelers’ attention is drawn to the fact that the E-visa allows border checks to be passed more quickly.
Standard procedure in embassies: if you are not eligible for the e-Visa or if the type of visa you wish can not be obtained through the e-Visa procedure, you can go to the nearest Kenya Embassy (see locations on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kenya website, tab “missions abroads”) with the required documents they asked you to bring.
