Sometimes the hustle of waiting for your visa and the stress really ruins the fun and excitement of travel. So, some countries offer Kenyan Citizens a Visa upon Arrival to ease the burden and stress. Though there are a few steps that one has to undergo after cross checking with the table attached below for relative country.

1. Finding the correct airport. Not all airports offer this particular service, so cross checking to find the specific airports in the country that issue the visas on arrival should be a start.

2. Have your documents prepared. This goes without saying because without documentation you cannot move around and justify your details. The documents differ from country to country, but the general required documents are: 

•          Your passport

•          Visa application form

•          Travel Insurance 

•          Proof of financial means

•          Proof of hotel reservation 

•          Proof of purchased return ticket

4. Have money on hand to pay the fee. Some of the countries require to pay beforehand while applying for the visa while others you can pay upon arrival. Either way make sure you have either money in hand for payment or receipt as proof of payment. The fee changes based on your country of destination, the visa type and whether it’s a single or a multiple entry visa.

With the above steps you are free to travel without stress and comfort.
