In thirteen years of activity of the Portal of Italians in Kenya and in the relatively short life of our social pages, those who have approached Kenya but also those who have become regular guests, we have received and answered thousands of emails, sms, messages and posts.
In the end, except for particular periods or limited events, the main questions that we (almost) always answer are on the same topics.
We have therefore decided to give you a summary, at the dawn of the possible, hoped-for official reopening of tourism from Italy to the country in which you are interested.
In a single "index" you will find links to other articles published and updated to the current date.
GOING TO AND RETURNING FROM KENYA: WHAT IS REQUIRED

ONLINE VISA: HOW TO DO IT?
Here you will find all the information you need to fill in the tourist visa online, which from 1 January 2021 is the only way to enter Kenya as a tourist, in the sense that the paper visa to be filled in on arrival is no longer valid. You have to show up with the one issued by the Kenyan Immigration through electronic means. Click here for information on what you need to do and how to fill it out.
3. WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR GOING TO KENYA AS A TOURIST?
As you know, as of 31 July, tourism in Kenya from Italy is prohibited according to the Decree of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers. Kenya is in fact included in the "E" band of countries with which there is not yet an agreement to reopen reciprocally.
However, there are exceptions and 'escamotage'. In the article you can click on below, all possibilities are listed.

6. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO LIVE IN MALINDI OR WATAMU?
One of the most frequently asked questions by those who want to move to Kenya concerns the cost of living.

This article discusses different types, from the most basic and spartan to the "nabob" type.
