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.
