The Department of Immigration Services-Kenya has informed Kenya Airways that effective 1st July 2015, the above Ministry is launching an on-line visa application portal which can be accessed by going to www.ecitizen.go.ke.
This pilot scheme will run for two months after which from 1st September 2015, all applicants will be required to apply and pay on –line for their visas. This facility is for single entry tourist and transit visas only.
As the introduction of this visa process is only very recent, there is a two month grace period whereby visas may still be purchased on arrival. This grace period will expire on 31 August 2015.
In order to apply for a single tourist or transit visa, you will need to register by visiting the above website. The fee of USD 51.00 (Visa fee) or USD 21.00 (Transit Visa) includes a service fee. Please also note you will need to upload a passport size photo when completing the application.
The applications will be processed on-line and the resulting visa emailed to the applicant who is then required to print off the approved application and present it to an immigration officer at the point of entry.
All passengers must present a printed copy of their e-visa at the time of check in. Kenya Airways reserve the rights to deny passengers from travelling if correct documentation is not available when requested.
