Kenya Business Visa

UK citizens who need to travel to Kenya for work purposes must obtain a business visa before departure. This is mandatory for individuals who intend to engage in activities like attending meetings, exploring business ventures or conducting pre-sales negotiations. Without a business visa, travellers won’t be allowed into Kenya for work purposes.

GulfVisa’s Kenyan visa services save you the time and effort you would have otherwise needed to spend applying for a Kenyan business visa yourself. Your application will be in the safe hands of our accredited agents, meaning that all you need to do is sit and wait for your visa to arrive.

Notice for multiple entry visas

Multiple entry visas are issued at the discretion of the embassy and cannot be guaranteed. Also, if you wish to apply for a multiple entry visa your passport must be valid for at least 1 year from the date of entry to Kenya.

Business Visa Rules

A Kenyan business visa allows you to attend conferences, workshops, seminars or discussions. However, it does not allow you to undertake any activities that would be considered work or gainful employment. Those who wish to work in Kenya — including voluntary work — require authorisation from the Director of Immigration Services in Nairobi.

When is a Kenya business visa valid from?

A Kenyan business visa becomes valid from the date of entry into the country, not the date of issue.
