About the Kenya visa

Travellers that want to travel to Kenya in 2022 or 2023 require a visa to do so. A Kenya visa application can be submitted online through this website. It is not necessary to visit the Kenya embassy.

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 relate to the application process, and requirements that relate to the actual trip to Kenya.

Requirements to qualify for the visa:
  • All travellers (including children) need to possess their own passport; it needs to be valid for at least 6 more months from the moment of arrival, and contain at least one empty page
  • It is only permitted to arrive in Kenya at one of the 10 selected airports, 10 selected seaports or 11 selected border crossings which can be found on the Kenya visa requirements page
  • Before applying for the visa, the dates of arrival and departure must be known, and at least one accommodation in Kenya must already have been booked
  • In addition to a photograph and a scan of the passport, the following documents need to be provided online:
    • A booking confirmation of a hotel or resort, or a letter of invitation from a Kenyan citizen, and a scan or photo of the passport or identity card of this person
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 accommodation, 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
  • Travellers cannot pose a threat to the safety and law enforcement of Kenya

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 traveller does not leave the airport.

Kenya visa application

The visa for Kenya can be applied for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online through this website. This can be done up to 7 days before departure. To avoid potential risks, it is advised submitting the application more than two weeks before departure.

You can also apply for a visa directly with the immigration service (52,53 USD per visa, via dis.ecitizen.go.ke). However, not with our level of support. If you submit your application via e-Visa.ie, our support centre is available to you 24/7. In addition, we manually check your application and all the documents you provide before submitting it to the immigration authorities on your behalf. If we suspect any errors or omissions while doing so, we will personally contact you immediately to ensure that your application can still be processed quickly and correctly. To use our services, you pay us 52,53 USD in consular fees, which we pay to the immigration service on your behalf, as well as € 29,51 in service fees as compensation for our services, including VAT. Our services have saved many travellers from major problems during their trip. Should an application be rejected despite our support and verification, we will refund the full purchase price (unless an application for a previous Kenya visa has been rejected for the same traveller before).
