Things to Note:

E-Visa applications must be made through only.

Please note that visas once issued are not sent to your email addresses, they are only accessible via your e-citizen account.

Visa applicants are required to have national passports/travel documents valid for at least 6 months from the date of intended entry into Kenya.

Incomplete applications will NOT BE PROCESSED and WILL BE REJECTED.

The possession of a visa for Kenya is not the final authority to enter Kenya. The Immigration Officer at the port of entry may refuse such a person permission to enter if he is satisfied that such a visitor is unable to fulfil the immigration requirements and that the entry and presence of such a visitor, in Kenya would be contrary to national interests even though such a person may be in possession of a valid visa for Kenya.

Please ensure that all the information entered in the visa application form is correct before clicking submit.

Please ensure that you have applied for the correct category of visa.
