Kenya Is Visa-Free!

So yes, it is true that Kenya is now a visa-free country. Starting January 2024, people of all countries no longer need to apply for a visa to enter Kenya. The president announced on their 60th independence day that they’ve developed a a digital platform to ensure all visitors would receive an electronic travel authorization in advance, ETA, which a lot of people will be familiar with when traveling to visa exempt countries.

Their ETA is expected to be about $30, and you still need to have a valid passport to travel. Make sure your passport is still valid for at least six months. As you know, Kenya is big on tourism. They made $2 billion last year from tourism. So with this move, they’re hoping to get even more tourists and more revenue.

I’ve seen mixed reactions online, some are excited that this will boost Kenyan tourism; some are saying it will attract criminals. I want to know what you guys think. Keep in mind, Kenyan president Ruto has actually been advocating for all of Africa to be visa-free for Africans, so we can promote businesses, investments opportunities, among ourselves.

In Europe, you can literally drive from one country to another. and many of those countries are so close to one another, that you can literally eat breakfast in italy and lunch in France for example. What do you think about all African countries becoming visa-free to africans?
