The Kenyan Government issues two types of visas: An e-Visa (electronic visa) and
a traditional visa stamped into your passport.
TravelDocs recommends applying for an e-Visa if you only require a single entry
visa for Kenya. If a multiple entry visa is required please
apply for the traditional stamped visa.
The e-Visa is valid for a single entry only, good for 90 days from date of issue
for a stay up to 90 days, and extendable for up to an additional 90 days while in
country. It is very easy to apply for and does not required sending your physical
passport to TravelDocs. It can be issued in as little as 24 hours (Monday - Friday)
and is a cost-effective option.
A Traditional Visa is valid for multiple entries into Kenya, good for 6 months from
date of issue for a stay up to 90 days, and extendable for up to an additional 90
days while in country. This option requires your physical passport and supporting
documents to be sent to TravelDocs for submission to the Kenyan Embassy for processing.
Although slightly more complicated and expensive to apply for this option is best
if you require more than one entry into Kenya as part of your itinerary and/or you
may return to Kenya with 6 months.
