Prerequisite requirements for Tourist Kenya E-Visa

Kenya Tourist Visa Requirements:

The Kenya e visa for tourists can be used as a single-entry visa. Can you guess the validity period? 90 days of validity! Wow, isn’t that amazing? But kindly note, if you apply for a Kenya Tourist Visa, you will only have to use it for tourism. Eligible citizens can travel to Kenya for tourism and stay up to 90 days consecutively.

3 Main documents to get a Kenya e Visa:

  • A photo scanned color copy of your passport’s/travel document first and last pages. Your travel document/passport must be valid for at least 6 (six) months from the date of travel and have at least three blank pages.
  • Colored scan copy of your photograph with a white background. 
  • A confirmed roundtrip ticket.

Let’s now see if you will need to carry any further documents based on Nationality. UAE citizens must carry the following additional documents for a Kenya e visa:

What additional documents will I need to apply for a Kenya e-Visa for a minor?

No. But it is advisable to bring a photocopy of the minor’s birth certificate showing both Father and mother’s full names, date of birth, and Nationality. Translate your birth certificate into English.

Medical Documents:

Yellow fever is a deadly disease that needs attention. Therefore, travelers arriving in Kenya within six days of departure from any yellow fever endemic nation need to hold (in original) a yellow fever certificate of vaccination. Else they will be subjected to be quarantined for six days upon arrival in Kenya.

No-objection letter from the employer for Kenya Tourist E-Visa:

Not at all. You need to carry a No Objection Letter from the employer to apply for a Kenya e visa.

Invitation letter for a Kenya e Visa:

To apply for a Kenya e visa for tourist, the traveler need not require an invitation letter from any company/organization. However, you might require documents to attend any short-term courses. Therefore, a copy of a letter from the concerned company/organization, institute, hospital, etc., on its letterhead is mandatory. Or, if you are to initiate voluntary work for a short period, get a copy of a letter from the organization concerned on its letterhead.
