Kenya Visa update surprise

Visa Applications will be available on arrival in Nairobi after all.

Late yesterday Kenya Airways made the surprise announcement that Kenya’s Department of Immigration have installed separate desks at Nairobi Airport (JKIA) to facilitate visitors coming to the country who have failed to secure an e-visa in time or even failed to apply for one online .

This adds to the confusion as it is not yet clear whether this facility will be available in Mombasa  or indeed how long it will be available. Operators should check as some airlines may not be aware of this late change of heart and may still refuse boarding for those without e visas.
