How to Get a Student Visa for Kenya

Kenya Student Visa

Kenya Student Visa

If you are going to Kenya to study, you are going to need to get a student visa. The main hurdle for this type of visa is getting an admission letter from a relevant institution in Kenya and getting a Pupils Pass.

As stated here at the Embassy of Kenya website, non-Kenyan students intending to pursue studies in Kenya at any level (including internships), must obtain a Kenya Pupils Pass from the Director of Immigration Services before embarking on their studies.

Your best bet is to come to the country on a Kenya Tourist Visa and then get your Pupils Pass (a.k.a. Kenya Student Visa) at the Department of Immigration in Kenya.
