The Kenyan High Commission has announced that South African travellers wanting to visit Kenya will need a visa from September 1, 2014 (this was postponed from a previous set date, July 1, 2014).
Ordinary visa applicants travelling to or transiting through Kenya will be required to pay a service charge of R 750 ($70).
All applicants will be required to produce the following documents:
1. Return Air Ticket
2. Invitation letter from the host in the Republic of Kenya
3. Letter from employer/institution/college/school
4. Proof of funds (bank statement)
5. Applicants must appear in person for Biometrics
6. Two Passport Photographs
The processing period for the visas is strictly five (5) working days.
Holders of official or diplomatic passports travelling on Government business are not affected by these changes.
For this reason, South Africans will now be eligible to apply for Multi – Journey Visas, whereas before, this was not possible.
