Kenyan Immigration has instituted a strict visa policy whereby all visitors are strongly encouraged to obtain visas by using an online system, though visas are available upon arrival at international ports of entry including Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
For additional information on immunizations and detailed country-specific recommendations on vaccinations and other health precautions for travelers to Kenya, visit the CDC’s Travelers’ Health website.
For nationals of United Kingdom, United States, India, Holland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and all countries not mentioned as requiring Referred Visas, the Visa may be obtained upon arrival at the international airports in Nairobi and Mombasa. However we do suggest that if possible, Visa be applied for in advance from your country of residence via the Kenya embassy, high commission or consulate.
All international airline passengers flying into Kenya are required to complete an online Health Information form which needs to be submitted after check-in and prior to arrival:
Guests should complete and submit this form online once they have checked in and have their seat number prior to boarding and they should receive a confirmation QR code by email once submitted.
In addition to submitting the forms electronically, it is recommended that they also print out a copy of the form in advance and fill it in by hand before landing, to speed up the clearing process at JKIA as port health officials may require this form before screening.
Covid-19 PCR Test Certificate
All arriving passengers are required to have Covid-19 PCR Test Certificate showing a Negative test result. There has been some confusion regarding the validity period and whether this is prior to travel or prior to arrival. Some guidelines on airline or embassy websites for the Covid-19 PCR test indicate that this is required 96 hours before travel and this is also shown on the Kenya Airports Authority website. However it has been indicated by the Port Health Authority officials at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport that the 96 hours is from the date when the test was carried out until the date of ARRIVAL at JKIA and not the time of departure on a flight to Kenya. We are seeking further clarification from the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Health and will provide a further update as soon as this is issued.
So it is important that you have the test done just before travel but leaving enough time to receive the results and the negative test certificate, giving 96 hours validity up until arrival at JKIA.
