Kenya is the birthplace of the safari and was the first country to introduce the concept of the famous Big 5.
Home to the iconic Masai Mara, it also plays host to the desert-like Samburu Reserve and to sublime beaches.
To help you plan your holiday to Kenya, our Africa expert Felicity has put together a short guide on everything you need to know about travelling to Kenya post-lockdown.
All passengers must have a negative PCR result not older than 96 hours before boarding to be allowed entry into Kenya. Passengers must also complete a COVID-19 Travellers Health Surveillance Form. After submitting the form, passengers will receive a QR code which must be presented to port health officials for them to be allowed to proceed to arrival immigration.
No, travellers arriving from the UK are not required to enter mandatory quarantine for 14 days, as long as they have a negative COVID-19 test.
However, all travellers will be screened on arrival and anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to quarantine in the place they are staying for the first 14 days of their stay and observe Government of Kenya protocols as directed.
There are no restrictions on where you can travel in Kenya. However, a nationwide curfew is in effect from 9pm to 4am until further notice. During curfew hours, everyone must stay at home or indoors, except for essential service workers. The Government of Kenya has advised that passengers departing the airport after the 9pm curfew must retain their boarding pass as proof of their arrival time which will allow for movement to their accommodation. Similarly, evidence of air passengers arriving after 9pm will enable access for drivers coming to collect passengers during curfew hours.
The Kenyan Government has implemented Covid-19 health and safety protocols that all tourism and hospitality establishments must comply with. Face masks must be worn in public places, except when dining, or when adhering to social distancing in hotels, gardens or on beaches.
Yes, you will currently need to quarantine for 14 days once you return home.
