Entry rules for Kenya

September 28, 2022

Unvaccinated against coronavirus tourists are allowed to visit the country

Recently, the entry rules have been relaxed. The main change is that tourists who are not vaccinated against the coronavirus are allowed to visit this East African country under certain conditions.

One of the following medical documents is required to enter Kenya:

  • Certificate of vaccination against COVID-19 (last dose at least 14 days before arrival)
  • PCR test in English, made no earlier than 72 hours before departure from the first landing point

Passengers under the age of 12 do not need any certificates.

There is also an option to fly without these documents and undergo a rapid antigen test at the airport of arrival, but it is better not to risk it and pass all the tests in the country of departure.
