Kenya has announced major changes in its visa policy from this July onwards. Unlike in the past when Indians were able to get their visa on arrival in Nairobi or Mombasa, intending visitors will now have to apply for an e-Visa in advance, with processing days taking as much as a week.

Although, there is a grace period till August 31, 2015, which will allow tourists and business travellers arriving at one of the two international airports, to get their visa on arrival. But effective September 1, this dual mode will be scrapped and only the e-Visa process will be available. Travellers would be able to apply for entry visas via a dedicated portal at www.ecitizen.go.ke from 2 July 2015.

The e-visa process will then become compulsory from 1 September 2015.
