Yemeni who want to go to Kenya are no longer required to visit an embassy to get their visas. At this point, there are over 100 nationalities that can apply for an electronic visa, so you need to check your eligibility first. To do that, you can access iVisa’s website and use the Visa Checker. Just choose your country of origin from the drag-down menu and Kenya as the destination. You will find out in just a second whether you qualify for a Kenya evisa or not. What is even better is that once you are deemed eligible, you can apply right on the spot. You will be given specific instructions on what to do.
The process may be made simple by iVisa, but you still need to provide a few things. Below you will find a list of everything you need:
Passport – getting a Yemeni passport is quite straightforward. However, if you already have one, make sure that it is valid and will continue to be as such for at least another six months from your date of departure. It is necessary in case you wish to prolong your visit.
A digital copy of your passport’s main page – that is where all the essential information is written.
Digital passport photo – it is recommended that the photo is as recent as possible and follows the criteria of a passport photo format.
Your travel itinerary
Proof of accommodation – a hotel confirmation or a letter from a host will suffice.
Valid e-mail address – iVisa will send you the document via e-mail in PDF format. While the visa will be linked to your passport electronically, you still need a copy to show at the immigration office.
iVisa does its best to make the task easier for Yemeni. The company has created a very simple form that you can fill in online. It has three steps, and if you need any help, you can contact a support service that is at your disposal 24/7.
The first step will ask Yemeni to fill in your personal information such as name, address, passport info, and so on. Also, you must choose a processing time. Be advised that your choice will determine the cost of your visa. Here are your options:
Standard processing time – if you select this option, your evisa will be ready within just three business days. As for the cost, this is the cheapest option, which means that you will pay only $88.
Rush processing time – this time, the time will take for your application to be processed will be shortened to 2 business days. The cost, however, will go a bit higher. You will be charged $118.
The second step of the application process consists of a quick revision and payment. Yemeni need to make sure that every piece of information you insert is accurate and correct. Once your application is processed, corrections are impossible to make, which will force you to go through the process and pay again.
The third step consists of documents upload and a personal questionnaire. As for the former, not all applicants are asked to upload the same documents. There are the documents mentioned above that need to be uploaded by everyone, but depending on your particular case, you may be required to upload others as well. For instance, people who travel with their minor child will need to upload an authorization letter from the other parent.
The document will allow Yemeni a single entry in Kenya, and you can stay for maximum 30 days. However, if you wish to prolong your trip, you can extend your visa, but you need to pay a visit to Kenya’s NPRA (Nationality, Passport, and Residence Affairs.)
