Australian Citizens Who Need Transit Visa for Kenya

iVisa | Updated on Jan 26, 2022

If you are an Australian national planning to transit through Kenya on your way to another country, you may need a Kenya transit visa. If your stop in Kenya will be 72 hours or less and you plan on leaving the airport, you will definitely need a transit visa. For Australians who are simply stopping in Kenya to catch a connecting flight with no plans to leave the airport, no transit visa would be required.


Simply put, a transit visa is a temporary visa that is valid for short periods of time and is used for passing through a country, but not staying there. If you will have a long layover in Kenya, it is recommended that you apply for a Kenya transit visa.

For Australian citizens looking to visit friends or take a day to explore Kenya, a transit visa would be great for a one or two day excursion. Anything longer than that and you would need to apply for a visa granting you a longer stay, such as a single entry visa.

iVisa has a 100% money-back guarantee. As you can see on our site, we have Excellent 5-star reviews from people all around the world. Our 24/7 customer service gives you stellar results and a quick turnaround in processing your application.
