It is quick and easy for Kenyan nationals to gain an eVisa for South Africa through the online application system.
Travelers must complete a South African eVisa application form from Kenya with personal and passport information, answer a few health and security-related questions, and share details of their planned visit. Applicants will also have to provide certain supporting documents.
Applicants must ensure all information entered on the form is correct, in order to avoid any unnecessary processing delays.
When applying for the South African eVisa, travelers must have a valid Kenyan passport that will not expire for at least six months past the intended date of travel. All applicants must also have a valid email address and a credit card to pay the fees online.
On approval, the eVisa is linked to the traveler’s passport. If an applicant’s passport or travel dates change after approval, it is necessary to apply for a new eVisa – this information cannot be amended via the online system.
As the eVisa for South Africa for Kenyans is electronically linked to the passport used in the application process, Kenyan travelers must use this same passport to gain entry to South Africa.
If the passport used in the application is renewed, lost, stolen, damaged, or otherwise rendered invalid, it is necessary to apply for a new eVisa for South Africa with the new Kenyan passport.
