Kenya Visa Application

Kenya Visa Application

Nigerian passport holders require a visa to travel to Kenya, but rest assured the Kenya visa process is an easy one! Travellers can apply for the Kenyan e-visa for tourists online through eVisa. Once you’ve downloaded your e-visa, simply present it to port officials upon arrival, and you’re all set. Travellers can apply for their US visa a maximum of three months before their date of travel.

Types of Kenya Visas

Single-Entry Visa: This e-visa allows you to enter Kenya once. The single-entry visa is for those who want to go to Kenya for business, tourism or medical reasons. It is valid for three months from the date of issue with a stay of up to 90 days in Kenya. You can renew the single-entry visa for up to a maximum of six months at the immigration headquarters in Nairobi.

Transit Visa: You’ll need a transit visa for a short stop-over of up to 72 hours.

Note: Your passport should be valid for at least six months beyond the date of return.

The wait time for appointments can be up to two months, while the processing time for the USA visa application is usually between five to fifteen days. These times can vary depending on the type of application submitted, whether the application is complete, and the volume of received applications.
