Kenya is now open for travellers from India, revoking the temporary ban on passenger flights. The ban was imposed from May 2021 due to the increase in Covid-19 cases in the second wave in India.
The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) also reiterated this saying it would provide impetus to travels that were stopped due to the pandemic.
The visa application process will still be conducted online.
The Indian travellers would not need to undergo quarantine provided they have negative PCR tests results for Covid 19 test. The test needs to be done 96 hours before travelling.
Along with this, the yellow fever vaccine is also mandatory for all travellers. They would need to carry a valid vaccine card when arriving in Kenya.
In this global pandemic situation, Kenya seems to be one of the few long-haul destinations Indians can travel to. Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) is engaged in several marketing programmes like digital campaigns, radio contests, and webinars to attract travellers.
KTB also said that there are three direct flights from Mumbai to Nairobi, on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays each week.
