Kenyan nationals can just wake up, board a plane and fly to at least 28 countries which offer them visas upon arrival with the only major requirement - a passport.

115 countries have very stringent visa requirements for Kenyans, demanding that persons wishing to visit must schedule appointments and interviews at their embassies to obtain visas.

However, some countries have less strict visa requirements for Kenyan nationals allowing them visa-free visits, eVisa and visa on arrival.

2022 World Cup host Qatar is among countries that allow Kenyans to apply for visas online without the need of visiting their embassies and High Commissions.

Visa on arrival destinations for Kenyan passport holders

US visa hitch almost denied sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala a chance to compete in the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, US, after failing to receive his visa on time.

However, some countries are not as strict as the US, granting Kenyans visas when they touch down at their airports and other points of entry.

Visa on arrival is simply a visa that is granted when you arrive in a foreign country. It is issued to foreign nationals who need a visa to enter the country but does not require them to apply in advance of travel.

The visa on arrival is usually made available to travellers visiting for short-term visits. Government authorities generally examine the visitor's passport and may collect any applicable fees before issuing the documentation.
