On September 1, 2015, the Department of Immigration Services in Kenya launched an e-Visa which allows visitors to apply for a visa online without having to visit a Kenyan diplomatic mission.

This e-Visa is an authorization document issued in PDF format that allows visitors to travel to a Kenyan entry point. Applicants will receive their visas via email, after filling the application form with the necessary information and once the online credit card payment is completed.
