Visa fee
  • You are going to need to gather the appropriate processing fee. This fee will be listed on your embassy or consulate website.
  • The official list of fees is listed here at the Kenya Department of Immigration website.
  • If you are applying within the United States, I recommend you go to your nearest Post Office and get a U.S. Postal Service Money Order.

Submit materials
  • Submit your required materials from Step 2 and visa fee from Step 3 to the embassy or consulate you found in Step 1.
  • Your embassy or consulate website will have detailed application submission instructions.
