The costs for the e-visa Kenya are £89.95 per person. It is no longer possible to apply for a Kenya tourist or business visa with the High Commission in London, the embassy of Kenya in Dublin, or any consulate or embassy in another country. Eligible travellers need to apply for these visas online, as well as pay for these applications online.Simple application for the Kenya visa via this website
Kenya visa costs
The costs of the e-visa Kenya are not determined by your (main) official travel purpose. Both the tourist visas and business visas are equally priced. Even when travelling to Kenya for medical treatment, the visa cost remains the same. For each of these travel purposes the visa can be applied for in a similar fashion. This is done using this online application form. After the visa is issued, you may use it to stay in Kenya for up to 90 days.
Paying for your Kenya visa application: available payment methods
Payment for the Kenya visa application is done safely, securely and fast using any of the reliable methods for online payment. You can make your payment with Mastercard, Visa, American Express, or using PayPal, Trustly, Apple Pay or Google Pay. Visa costs for this visa will stay the same. Since the total amount is credited in € when applicants apply through this website for an EU country, for applicants from Ireland there is no need to pay any currency exchange surcharge either.
The costs for a Kenya visa application can be paid using any of the following payment methods:
Visa cost structure
Costs for your Kenya visa application using e-Visa.co.uk amount to a total of £89.95. This is the complete price, including all consular fees, service charges and taxes for a standard application, although a transaction cost service charge may apply according to the selected method of payment.
Consular fee of the Kenya visa
The consular fee, included in the complete visa pricing, amount to 52.53 USD per visa application. This part of the total fee is paid to the Kenyan authorities. It is both a payment to Kenya’s immigration service for reviewing your visa application and a means of tourist tax income for the country. In part, the consular fee will thus be used for Kenyan wildlife protection and to the benefit of local economies. Something similar applies to the separate entry charges for Kenya’s national parks.
Service fee for the Kenya visa
The service fee for the Kenya visa is the price difference between the consular costs (52.53 USD) and the price total (£89.95). Since the total visa cost is expressed as a fixed rate and the consular costs come down to an amount in US dollars, the service charge level depends on the exchange rate. At the current exchange rate the service fee, including VAT, is at £48.43 for each Kenia visa application. This amount is charged by e-Visa.co.uk for processing your application. Paying the service fee, you will have access to a comprehensible online application form and 24/7 customer support by phone, as well as email support.
Manual checking of your visa application
In addition, the service fee also enables manual checking of your application by a visa expert. This specialist checks each application form for frequently made mistakes. The passport page scan or copy will also be checked to cross-reference the passport information entered in the application form. Thanks to such checks, hardly any application submitted through e-Visa.co.uk is rejected. Careful checking also ensures that a visa that has been issued, would actually be valid. For instance, if an incorrect passport number ends up on the visa, it is automatically invalidated for travel. By applying with e-Visa.co.uk you will thus enhance your chances of travelling to Kenya hassle-free.
Delivery times for the Kenya visa
|Average delivery time for the Kenya visa*|
|Standard applications||9 days|
|Urgent delivery||3 days|
* All mentioned delivery times are averages. It is expressly stated here that no maximum delivery times can be guaranteed.
On average the delivery time for the Kenya visa is 9 days. Many visas are issued sooner than this, but your application may also be delayed. For instance, in case your personal information or documents are incorrect or incomplete. Delays may also occur when, due to high processing workloads with either e-Visa.co.uk or the Kenya immigration service, your application remains on hold for longer than usual. Extensive sample checks and/or system malfunctions may also cause delays at times. Such instances explain why a maximum delivery time for your visa application can never be guaranteed. As you already need a visa before your departure to Kenya, you are advised to submit your visa application at least several weeks before you travel.
Urgent delivery in 3 days
If you were unsuccessful in applying for the Kenya visa in time (with a standard application), you can still apply as soon as possible, opting for urgent delivery. For urgent applications, visas are generally issued in 3 days. Please note, the same risks of delays as for an ordinary application apply to urgent applications. The difference between a standard application and an application with urgent delivery is that in the latter case e-Visa.co.uk will put your urgent application ahead in its processing queue. In most cases, this will yield an issued visa within 3 days. It is stated explicitly here, however, that it can never be guaranteed that this would also be successful for your application.
Do you want to travel to Kenya within 12 days from the moment you can apply? In this case, e-Visa.co.uk will only accept your application if you opt for urgent delivery. The Kenya visa costs for an urgent application are higher; a urgent application surcharge of £17.50 per person applies.
e-Visa.co.uk is a commercial and professional visa agency, and supports travellers in obtaining, among others, the Kenya visa. e-Visa.co.uk acts as an intermediary and is in no way part of any government. You can also apply for a visa directly with the immigration service (52.53 USD per visa, via dis.ecitizen.go.ke). However, not with our level of support. If you submit your application via e-Visa.co.uk, our support centre is available to you 24/7. In addition, we manually check your application and all the documents you provide before submitting it to the immigration authorities on your behalf. If we suspect any errors or omissions while doing so, we will personally contact you to ensure that your application can still be processed quickly and correctly. To use our services, you pay us 52.53 USD in consular fees, which we pay to the immigration service on your behalf, as well as £48.43 in service fees as compensation for our services, including VAT. Our services have saved many travellers from major problems during their trip. Should an application be rejected despite our support and verification, we will refund the full purchase price (unless an application for a previous Kenya visa was rejected for the same traveller).
