Kenya’s Electronic Travel Authorisation

Kenya's Electronic Travel Authorisation

Please be advised that Kenya’s Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) system is now operational. All travellers, including infants and children (except citizens of Kenya and East African Community partner states) arriving in Kenya from 4th January 2024, are required to apply for ETA online via prior to their arrival.

Please be advised of the below requirements for ETA applications:


  • Valid passport (6 month validity from the date of arrival in Kenya, with a minimum of one blank page)
  • Passport-style photo
  • Contact information (home address, email address and phone number)
  • Itinerary details
  • Accommodation booking confirmation
  • Credit card, debit card, Apple pay for payment of $34 per person


  • Yellow Fever certificate (if arriving from a Yellow Fever endemic country)
  • Additional vaccinations

Travellers are eligible to apply for ETAs within 3 months of their arrival date in Kenya. Following the application, a confirmation will be sent to the email address submitted in the application. Upon approval, the ETA will be sent to the same email address.

Standard processing time for ETAs is three working days and the status of applications can be checked at any time on the ETA website using the ETA reference number.

All previous visa entry requirements for Kenya are now replaced by the requirement of ETAs. All e-visas currently in process will be issued and travellers with existing e-visas will be granted access to Kenya within the validity period of 90 days, without the additional requirement of an ETA.
