What is a Kenya visa? The Kenya visa is an electronic travel permit (also known as e-visa) which is granted by the government of Kenya. This travel permit is mandatory; travellers without a valid visa will not be allowed into the country. This travel authorisation can be acquired in a business and tourist variant. With the Kenya visa, you are permitted to stay in the country for up to 90 days.
Terms and requirements
There are a number of requirements that travellers need to meet to apply for the Kenya visa. These can be divided into requirements that are of importance during the application, and requirements that apply during the trip to Kenya.
Requirements to qualify for the visa:
- All travellers (children included) need to possess their own passport; it needs to be valid for at least 6 more months from the moment of arrival, and to contain at least one empty page

- One of the documents below needs to be provided online:
- A booking confirmation of the return flight (travel schedule/itinerary), or
- A booking confirmation of an overnight stay, or

Requirements that travellers need to observe during their stay in Kenya:
- Travellers need to print the visa, as well as the bookings of the return or transit flight and the first overnight stay, and keep it with the passport throughout the entire trip
- Travellers can enter Kenya a single time with the visa, for a maximum length of stay of 90 days
- Travellers cannot enter into service with a Kenyan employer without additional authorisation

Each traveller has to apply for his or her own visa, except for children up to and including 15 years of age who are travelling to Kenya with their parents. It is also not necessary to apply if a transfer or transit is made in Kenya, during which the airport is not left.
