How long can Americans stay in Kenya on an E-Visa?

The duration of stay in Kenya for US citizens on a valid visa is the common concern for many US visitors.

Firstly, a Kenya eVisa for US citizens is valid for 03 months from the issued date, with a single entry into the country. This means that the visa holders must enter Kenya within 03 months of receiving the approved permit. The length of stay in Kenya, on the other hand, is determined by the type of visa that Americans use.

US citizens can engage in a wide range of activities using a Kenya e-visa. You may travel here to visit your friends and family, go on vacation, enjoy the landscapes in Kenya, do business, or make investments.

  • A tourist eVisa and a Business eVisa both allow you to remain in Kenya for up to 90 days from the date of arrival
  • A transit eVisa: You can use this visa to transit through Kenya and have a short trip in the country for 03 days.
  • East Africa eVisa: This type of visa is granted to US citizens who want to travel to Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda on a trip, with Kenya being the first stop. It permits a total stay of up to 90 days in three countries.
