Kenya Visa and Passport Requirements


Travellers entering Kenya need to be in possession of a valid passport and an approved ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization).

Passports should be valid for 6 months beyond the end of your visit to Kenya.

As of January 2024 Kenya has replaced its eVisa system with an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) system. 

All ETA applications must be submitted at least 3 days prior to travelling to Kenya in order to receive authorization. You can submit your application as early as 3 months prior to travel which is recommended.

In order to apply for an ETA you will need the following:

  • Valid passport for at least 6month after your planned date of arrival into Kenya with at least one blank page
  • Selfie or passport-type photo
  • Contact information, email address and phone number
  • Details of your arrival and departure itinerary
  • Confirmed accommodation booking
  • Credit card, debit card, Apple pay or other means of payment

ETA and passports are the responsibility of the traveller. It is best to consult with the high commission of the country being travelled to in the country being travelled from as requirements vary and change constantly.
