Kenya introduces e-visa service

A new e-visa service for UK and Irish travellers to Kenya is being introduced this week.

Visitors to the African country will be able to apply for entry visas in advance online via a dedicated portal at from Thursday (July 2).

Travellers will also have the option to buy their visa on arrival at Jomo Kenyatta international airport in Nairobi, in person at the Kenya High Commission in London and The Kenya Embassy in Dublin or via the online portal for a two-month transitionary period.

The e-visa process will then become compulsory from September 1.

Visitors are being advised by Kenya’s tourist office to register their application well in advance of travel as approvals may take up to seven days to process.

A single entry tourist visa to Kenya costs £30 and is valid for three months. The visa allows a re-entry to Kenya from Tanzania and Uganda.
