Google for the Kenya Embassy website and read the details under Visa Requirements. Bear in mind that you'll require 2/blank passport pages for Visa entry/departure stamps.

If there's a Kenya Embassy in Mumbai, contact them direct for details.

Hi,

India seems to have fallen through a gap somewhere on the Kenya Immigration site

http://www.immigration.go.ke/index.php?id=13

It is excluded from the Commonwealth countries that do not need a visa, it says you need a visa, but India is not on the lists for visas from Embassies or on arrival, or on the list for referred visas either.

Looks like you'll have to do as 4sandi suggests

Thanks to both of you for your prompt replies. I will update whatever the embassy says here.

Indian nationals do get visa on arrival in Kenya. I went to Nairobi for work last Monday and they gave me a one month visa on arrival.

""What purpose of ur visit did u tell to the immigration officer? Any questions asked?""

Fill in the Visa application and indicate "holiday" (assuming this is your purpose) - hand in the form with passport and USD$25. The agent will hand back your passport with Visa applied and receipt for your payment.

Nowadays, if you haven't been before and done so, they're taking photos and fingerprints of visitors (as many countries now do), so it takes a few minutes longer than previously... but not much!

Hi doff and all, the web page you quoted has now changed, it takes you to the immigration home page. the visa page is now.

www.immigration.go.ke/index.php…

Application form is at www.immigration.go.ke/index.php…

It appears that the $25 visa and free children under sixteen ends at the end of the year.
