Kindly note; the Kenyan government requires citizens from other nationalities to obtain a visa before they are allowed to travel through the country, tour or even do business in the country. There are three main types of visas:
- Kenya Tourist Visa
- Kenya Transit Visa
- Kenya Business Visa
The tourist visa is a single entry visa issued specifically for tourism. It is valid for 90 days stays, although it can be renewed once in the country for a maximum of 6 months stay.
Kenya Business Visa is a single entry visa issued to people who wish to do business in Kenya. It is valid for 90 days for a stay of up to 90 days.
Applications for visa must be submitted on the eCitizen website.
If you need assistance with the application process, just call or email us.
Learn a bit of Swahili...
Kenya like many other African countries is a multi-lingual speaking country. But English & Swahili are the national languages; English is a more formal language often spoken in business transactions and governments offices while Swahili is the language most Kenyans converse with on a daily basis.
Here are some basic words you'll likely hear:
Jambo is one of the most common words you will hear spoken throughout Kenya. This is the simplest Swahili greeting, and is often the first word learned by visitors to Kenya. The reply is “Sijambo” (Am good)
Habari similarly to “jambo” is a common greeting word. One would reply Mzuri (good).
Being courteous in Kenya gets you along way. So, occasionally starting with “Tafadhali” might help.
Asante is how one says thank you. Remember courtesy is important in Kenya.
Kwaheri is how one says bye in swahili.
Pesa is the swahili term for money. When you ask how much money, you’d say “Pesa Ngapi?”
Simu is the swahili term for a mobile phone. When you want to call someone, you’d say “Na piga simu?”
Nisaidie is the swahili equivalent of help me. You’re more likely to hear it being used together with “tafadhali”. For instance, one would say“Tafadhali nisaidie” which loosely translates to “Please, help me”
