In the following you will find all the information you need during your stay in Kenya on topics of interest. Where can I get a visa for Kenya? Visas are needed to enter Kenya and the Kenyan Government has set up an on-line visa request gateway which will become mandatory for all visa holders from 1 September 2015.
Now all visa seekers are obliged to apply and make payments on-line before travelling to Kenya (the use of IE can cause difficulties when applying, much better to make sure you apply on Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome). Note: Due to some unfortunate e-Visa issues, you may still receive a visa upon your return to Kenya.
It is recommended that Kenyan travellers submit their applications well in advance of their trip as the processing of permits can take up to seven workdays. Actual charge is US$51 (or equivalent) when using Visa or Mastercard direct debit is used. We also accept credit card payments, but we charge an extra 3%.
If you apply, you must have your original travel document at your fingertips, your travel document must be at least 6 month old, and you must use the following for the "Passport Information" section; you must also provide a color photograph or photograph of your passport's biodata, your travel reservation (you can email us to obtain a copy of your reservation certificate or your invoice) and an up-to-date photograph (full details can be found in the "Accompanying Documents" section of the visa application).
Make secure payments with Visa Card, Mastercard and other direct debit payment methods. Note: You must bring a hard copy of your e-Visa to Kenya. What do I get when I visit Kenya? Travellers mostly come to Kenya via Nairobi to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO). You need a visa to travel to Kenya.
However, if you were not able to obtain a visa before arriving in Kenya, there is still the option of obtaining a visa on your return. The Kenyan clock is GMT/UTC plus 3hrs. Calling from home at home at different tariffs can be quite costly, so make sure you contact your cellular phone before you visit Kenya.
You can also buy a copy of a Cambodian map in Kenya and top up your account by hand (vouchers for all major networked Kenya maps are available throughout Kenya). When you are planning to get a built-in map, make sure that your mobile is enabled for all your network. The Kenya has a broad mobile network cover and mobile telephones are used all over the state.
One of the first African nations to provide cheap Wi-Fi hotspots was Kenya. Before arriving in Kenya, we recommend that you make an appointment with your physician or a travel-specific physician to talk about your medical needs. Malaria is often a problem for Kenyans who come to Kenya.
Drugs are available in major Kenyan municipalities, but we recommend that you take some basic things with you from home. How is the quality of health care in Kenya? Kenya has very different health care institutions. In all the major urban centres there are good clinics. Even though we don't expect any problem during your stay in Kenya, there can be an accident.
Do I have access to an ATM in Kenya? ATMS withdrawals are available in most large Kenyan and Kenyan municipalities. Arriving in Kenya with money (Sterling, Euro's US Dollars, etc.) you can change money at a Forex market (you can only find Forex markets in the bigger Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu cities).
How can I get the best out of toilets? Toilets differ greatly according to your Kenyan site. Accommodation will have regular toilets, but in more remote areas toilets may or may not be repaired. Frequently, these systems have a bad odor and are filthy, so be ready. You should always shine a little bit of lights at nights.
How is the quality of Kenyan waters? In Kenya, mains taps are unsuitable for humans. It is recommended that you sterilise your body fluids correctly before use. Take your own Wildcamping filters (Backcountry) with you, use a SteriPen or use Jodtablets. SteriPen uses ultraviolet rays to destroy any virus or bacterium living in it.
Can only be used with uncontaminated or muddy waters. If you are staying in the countryside for an extended period of the year, a special bag will handle any kind of running fluid, but be sure to provide a way to flush or purge the bag. Jodine and chloride pills are also a good way, but it should be noted that they influence the flavour of the tap running out.
It is recommended that you always carry two cleaning techniques with you so that you have a back-up if one technique fails. In Kenya there is not enough equipment to be able to dispose them. When you are on an organized tour, we usually deliver filled waters from bigger returnable cylinders, so make sure you have your own one.
The schistosomal parasite can enter the epidermis of people who wade, swim, bathe or wash in polluted waters. Unprocessed tap irrigation from fresh waters may contain Cercaria larves. Clean the tap. Since there is no way to ensure that bottled waters that come directly from channels, lochs, rivers, brooks or fountains are secure, you should either cook them for 1 min or strain them before sipping them.
Boiled for at least 1 min kills all existing damaging particles, germs or virus. Wash your teeths with fresh brine. When wearing gas-permeable connectors, use only pure tap wash liquid or sodium chloride to flush them.
