Any Nigerian visiting Kenya needs a visa. There are 2 ways you can get a visa to Kenya – visa on arrival for just $50 or an e-visa.

The processing time for the Kenyan e-visa is two business days, but it is recommended to apply at least seven days before you travel in case additional documents are required.

Kenyan Visa Description

  • Single-Entry Visa – This e-visa allows you to enter into 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 – Allows you a short stop-over that can last up to 72 hours.
  • Mutiple Journey Visa: For people who have reasons to make frequent visits to Kenya, this visa category is required. The visa is valid for the period of 6 months to a year.
  • Service Visa: This visa category is only issued to persons traveling to Kenya for official purposes.
