Think of traveling to Kenya? To travel to Kenya for vacation or business purposes, you will need to obtain a Kenya visa. Be sure your passport is current and in order before applying for a visa. Keep the following in mind regarding your passport: tourists to Kenya must possess a passport that is valid for at least three months beyond their departure date. Kenya, along with a large number of other countries, requires at least two blank visa pages in your passport book upon entry and departure. Additionally, a transit visa may be required when flying to a nation via connecting flight.

To apply for a Kenya tourist visa, you must submit the following documents: a Kenya visa application form, a signed United States passport with at least six months validity, and (2) passport photographs. Additionally, you should include a copy of your itinerary, which details your journey.

You will have to submit a business letter and the documentation referred to in the paragraph above if you apply for a Business Visa. The business letter should introduce the applicant, describe the nature of the business that will be undertaken during the trip, and specify the kind of visa and preferred validity period. Furthermore, you must demonstrate sufficient finances for your travel purpose via a business letter. The business letter should be prepared on the letterhead of the company for which you are working.
