How and Where to Get a Kenya Visa

You can get a visa to enter Kenya either from your country or on arrival in Kenya. It is advisable to apply for a Kenya visa from your country before you travel. However, in case you travel to Kenya without a visa, you can apply at the immigration control office at your point of entry.

Alternatively, you can apply for an eVisa online at the eCitizen portal.

Do I Need to Get a Visa to Enter Kenya?
