Kenya E-visa for Australian Nationals

To answer your question directly, visas are necessary for travelers holding Australian passports who wish to enter Kenya.

Kenya Visa Requirements for Australians

Before they are allowed to travel to Kenya, all Australian tourists are needed to have at least six (6) months left on the passport that is currently being used for travel. This is considered to be the most crucial condition.

·      Passport information: Every tourist will be required to provide information about their passport, including the number of their passport, their nationality, their date of birth, the date their passport will expire, and other similar information.

·      A digital photograph: You will need to ensure that you have a recent photo of yourself (the passenger) that has been taken within the past six months. The photo should be clear and colored. The photograph must be taken against an all-white background, must show the traveler's head and shoulders from the front, and must be taken with the passenger maintaining a neutral look.

·    Return Ticket: In order to verify that the visitor does not overstay their permitted amount of time in the country, immigration officers may request to see a ticket out of the country (or an onward travel ticket).

·     Payment method: In order to pay for your Kenyan visa, you will need a method of payment, such as a debit card or credit card.
