Kenya still banned for tourism from Italy

Trying to open at least for vaccinated tourists

18-05-2021 by redazione

For the time being, Kenya remains in band 'E', i.e. in the list of countries indicated by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs among those where compatriots may not travel for tourism.
The order issued by the Presidency of the Council last Sunday, 16 May, in fact confirmed the Italian State's approach to entry and exit to non-Schengen countries, limiting to a few countries (in Africa only Tunisia and Rwanda) those where one can go for any reason.
Outside Europe, where restrictions have been relaxed, from Italy you can currently travel for tourism in the "long-haul" destinations only in Thailand, Australia (which has very strict rules for those arriving) Canada, United States, Japan, New Zealand, Republic of Korea and Singapore.
However, as we reported yesterday, the Ministry of Health or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs itself can change the lists at any time, so we can only hope that this will happen soon.
The other issue concerns Italians who have been vaccinated.
It would be natural that those who have received the dose and any booster and are declared immune from Covid-19 can freely travel to any corner of the world that has the criteria of safety and livability for a tourist (we mean, maybe at this time not India and Brazil ...) and Kenya certainly falls into this category, given the numbers, the danger and aggressiveness of the virus and the restrictions still in place, such as curfews and distance in the premises.
In our own small way, as an organ of information, collection and dissemination of news about Italians in Kenya and tourism promotion, we have sent a letter to the competent bodies, both Italian and Kenyan, so that this can happen quickly, to give the possibility to those who are vaccinated, want to book a holiday or an extended stay as a tourist in the African country in August, can start to do so.
As we have done, we hope that other associations, organisations, trade representatives and individuals will try to do the same thing.
