Kenya Visa

The Directorate of Immigration Services has launched evisa.go.ke which allows visitors to apply for the Republic of Kenya evisa online without having to visit a Kenyan diplomatic mission, or obtain the visa on arrival.

What is an eVisa


An eVisa is an authorization document issued in PDF format which allows visitors to travel to a Kenyan entry point. The eVisa should be presented to an immigration officer at any point of entry who grants the right to enter the Republic of Kenya by issuing visitors pass and endorsing it on the holders passport.

Validity of an eVisa

Category 2 Single Entry Visa is valid for travel within 3months from the date of issue. Category 3 Single Entry Visa is valid for travel within 1 month from the date of issue.

How to verify an eVisa

The visa is accessible for viewing by your airline, or at port, through an electronic system managed by the Kenyan Government. Once the e visa is issued, the holder can travel to an entry point where their passport will be stamped then they are allowed entry. Verify your evisa below.
