COVID-19 Requirements

All travelers arriving into the country through any point of entry shall no longer be required to show proof of either COVID-19 vaccination; or a pre-departure COVID-19 test.

Only travellers arriving at any point of entry into Kenya with flu-like symptoms will be expected to fill the passenger locator form on the ‘jitenge’ platform. They will also be required to take a COVID-19 antigen test upon arrival at their own cost. Those who turn positive for the antigen testing will be required to take a further COVID-19 PCR test at their own cost. Those with severe symptoms shall thereafter be allowed to isolate as per the prevailing isolation requirements for mild, moderate and severe disease.
