Also in 2023, all travelers bound for Kenya aged 12 years and older will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination at all ports of entry, either by QR CODE or alternatively a negative COVID-19 PCR test conducted no more than 72 hours prior to departure.
Travelers without proof of vaccination and without a negative PCR test, or with flu symptoms, will need to undergo a rapid antigen test at a cost of US$30. Those who test positive for the RDT antigen test will need to undergo a PCR test at a cost of US$50 and self-isolate according to Ministry of Health guidance on isolation.
All travelers entering Kenya will need to complete the passenger tracking form on the "jitenge" platform: https://ears.health.go.ke/airline_registration/ For more information on unvaccinated travelers, see the Exemptions section.
Travelers 11 years of age or younger are exempt from the requirement of a pre-departure vaccination certificate or PCR test.
Full details on the Government of Kenya's entry requirements related to coronavirus are available on the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority website.
If you are fully vaccinated
Most adults require a full dose of COVID-19 vaccine to enter Kenya.
The vaccine must be approved by the World Health Organization.
Proof of vaccination status
Proof of full vaccination status is required to enter Kenya. Vaccination is defined as having received the prescribed doses of a specific latest generation vaccine at least fourteen (14) days prior to arrival (excluding the day of vaccination).
Kenya will accept UK COVID-19 proof of cure and proof of vaccination issued in the Crown Dependencies. The NHS appointment card issued by vaccination centers is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to prove your vaccination status.
You can also upload your vaccination certificate on the Global Haven website. (www.globalhaven.org)
If you are not fully vaccinated
Unvaccinated individuals must submit a negative COVID-19 PCR test performed no more than 72 hours prior to departure.
Children and teens
Children 12 years of age and under do not need a negative PCR test or proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter Kenya.
Kenya is also completely back to normal as far as Covid rules are concerned.
