Kenyan Transit Visa for Nigeria Passport Holders

iVisa | Updated on Jul 25, 2022

If you are going to be in Kenya for no more than 72 hours or less as a Nigerian citizen and want to leave the airport, you will need a Kenya transit visa. Without this visa, you will only be able to stay within the airport for connecting international flights only.


A transit visa is a temporary, short-term conditional visa that allows you to pass through a country like Kenya on your way to your final destination. It is required of most citizens from other countries.

Fast Kenya Transit Visa for Nigerians

iVisa’s private services are not affiliated with governments or embassies which means we can be faster and more efficient. Our eVisa program for Nigerians wanting to go to Kenya is easy to fill out online and most of the time only takes a couple of hours.

When Kenya transit visa applications go live, you will be able to experience what thousands of satisfied iVisa customers have already experienced: a convenient and fast online application process and the best customer service experience if you run into trouble.

Nigeria Requirements for Transit Visa to Kenya

You will need a valid passport in order to obtain a Kenya transit visa as well as a recent, easy-to-view passport photo.

All Nigerian travelers will also need to show an onward ticket showing that you will not be staying in Kenya but merely passing through.

iVisa accepts Visa, Master Card, and American Express credit and debit cards. You can also pay via PayPal. We promise to use best practices when it comes to your data and credit card information. We get rid of your payment information as soon as it is processed!

After our secure and quick processing, iVisa will send your eVisa to your email address. You can show a digital copy or a printed copy to officials at Kenyan ports of entry. The eVisa is also digitally attached to your passport. Once we begin issuing Kenya transit visas, you will also be able to receive them by email.

No more traveling to an embassy and wasting time with the hassle of in-person visa processing. Using iVisa will be a transformative experience for any Nigerian citizen seeking to go through Kenya.

Until Kenya transit visas are available, you can obtain an eVisa through the same easy online application process. An eVisa is valid for a stay in Kenya for up to 90 days. Be sure that you don’t plan too far in advance as your eVisa, once issued, must be used within three months from approval. Then, you can stay up to 90 days once there.

We have a 100 % money-back guarantee. Join the thousands of iVisa customers who rave about our prompt and friendly online experience and 24/7 customer service. Anyone wanting a Kenya transit visa in the future will not be disappointed.
