During this time both systems will operate simultaneously providing Aussies with two options to secure a Kenyan visa.President Uhuru Kenyatta said though the e-visa was already running, manual application at the entry points to the country will continue concurrently so as not to discourage last-minute visitors to the country.“We have had a number of challenges on the implementation of the e-visa and I have therefore ordered that application of visa on arrival to the country continues as it were,” President Kenyatta said.The resumption of manual visa application, which ceased from 1 September 2015, is set to ease concerns from travel agents and tour operators who were anxious around the possibility of a drop in visitation as a result of challenges associated with new system.KTB Australia will keep you informed of any updates on these processes and the date of when visas will no longer be able to be obtained on arrival.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more
