Kenya eVisa for Indian Citizens

Citizens of most countries wishing to travel to Kenya are required to obtain a visa before the planned visit. Fortunately, Indian citizens can choose to use the online alternative to a regular visa - an eVisa to Kenya.

eVisa for Indian citizens serves as an online authorization that comes in three types and makes it possible to visit Kenya for purposes relating to leisure, business, and transit.  

The online application for an eVisa for Kenya requires submitting an application form. The process itself can take only a couple of minutes while the processing time may take up to 72 hours (3 business days). The approved visa is then delivered to each applicant via email in PDF form.
