SA travellers need visas for Kenya


According to eTurboNews, the Kenyan High Commission has announced that South African travellers wanting to visit Kenya will need a visa from 1 July.

Ordinary visa applicants travelling to or transiting through Kenya will be required to pay a service charge of $70.

All applicants will be required to produce a return air ticket, an invitation letter from a Kenyan host, a letter of intent from an employer, institution, college or school, proof of funds, and two passport photographs. Applicants must appear in person at a Kenyan consulate for biometric scanning.

The processing period for the visas is strictly five working days.

Holders of official or diplomatic passports travelling on government business are not affected by these changes and will continue to be issued visitors passes on arrival at the ports of entry.
