There have been an increasing number of reports, for the past month, of travelers who are unable to access the Kenyan immigration site evisa.go.ke, which is in fact the only one valid for issuing visas for entry into Kenya.
Although tourism from Italy is still banned, there are many residents, relatives or spouses of Kenyan citizens or residents in Kenya, residents with property or regular leases and other compatriots whose reasons for travel are accepted (or not checked) by the authorities.
As always, we invite our readers not to feel "too smart" because we have news of fines arrived even seven months after the trip for false self-certifications and tourists stopped at the time of boarding or checked on the way back and sanctioned. In the midst of these, it must be admitted that the vast majority of the smart ones have passed.
Returning to the site for visas, the issues encountered by our readers are particularly two.
1. THE SITE DOES NOT OPEN
Often the site evisa.go.ke is not displayed. It is necessary to try again several times and usually after an average of ten times, the page appears. It may also happen that the page gives an error message, explaining that the server took too long to respond. Be patient, it's the African "pole pole" that, like a bug, has also influenced websites.
Jokes aside, if it's really not what, try logging in with a different browser, if you have Google Chrome use Internet Explorer or Mozilla and vice versa.
2. THE SITE DOES NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARD FOR PAYMENT
It is actually the credit card that does not want to be entered into the Kenyan immigration site. Let's explain better: the site evisa.go.ke is not considered secure according to the latest European regulations on online payments. In this case, the only thing to do is to call your bank, explain what happened and get your credit card unblocked. The card will not be unblocked for all sites, so it will not become vulnerable to possible fraud, but the Kenyan site will be moved to the White List of http addresses considered reliable for online transactions.
For those who want to avoid these little stresses, the only method is to turn to an agency specialized in visas, paying a natural and not exorbitant commission. As recommended above, do not access online sites that promise visas, only the Kenyan one is valid, the others are scam sites.
