Benefits of Kenya eTA system:
Kenya eTA enables travellers to submit all relevant information and documentation from the comfort of their home locations before starting their trip. Travellers can enjoy peace of mind knowing that they meet the requirements for travel to Kenya.
Travellers do not need to fill out forms on the plane or at arrival anymore. Kenya eTA also benefits airlines by simplifying the check-in process. Transport carriers can easily verify that travellers have been authorised to travel by the Government of the Republic of Kenya and are in possession of an approved eTA. Kenya eTA will improve arrival processes into the Republic of Kenya by reducing the queues on arrival for health, customs, and immigration inspections. Kenya eTA supports the efforts of the Republic of Kenya to digitise its government processes.

What to do i do if  my eTA is denied: If your application has been denied, you will not be allowed to travel at this moment. Contact support@etakenya.go.ke to report your situation and obtain further details

Do Children or Infants also require the Kenya eTA ? Yes, all foreign visitors must apply for an eTA. For children under the age of 18, the legal guardian, parent or accompanying adult is responsible for filling in the application. We highly recommend that families apply as a group.

What Information is Required for an eTA Application
Valid Passport
Recent passport picture OR a selfie picture taken during application process
Contact details (home address, telephone, email).
Travel information and flight itinerary (arrival flight number, date of departure of initial flight in case of connecting flights).
Proof of booking for the hotel you will be staying at (if staying with friends, a letter of invitation is accepted).
Yellow fever vaccination certificate if coming from endemic countries (please check the WHO website for the updated list of countries).
Credit/Debit card information for payment, if applicable

Does an eTA Guarantee Permission to Travel ?No. An eTA is permission from the Kenyan Government to travel to the Republic of Kenya and it is mandatory to present a valid eTA during the check-in and boarding process. However, travelers may still be denied boarding by the carrier if other required documents such as passports and/or boarding pass are not presented. In addition travellersrs may be subjected to questioning at the point of departure or arrival. This might result in you being denied access to the means of transport.

What to do if my Means of Payment has been declined / refused For all visitors, the system will require a valid Credit or Debit card to make payment and complete the transaction. Cheques and cash are not accepted by the system. If the payment does not work, please wait a few minutes and try again, or check to make sure you have sufficient funds on your means of payment.
