The visa requirements to enter Kenya at this time are that a number of countries are exempt from needing a visa to enter Kenya. Most nationalities are required to apply for an eVisa via the Kenya Electronic Visa System.

For a small number of countries, a full visa application is required. For a list by country see below. This list is liable to change so it is always a good idea to check.

While in some cases it has been possible to get a visa on arrival, Kenya is phasing out this system and this is not recommended, especially as it is so easy to sort an eVisa.
