i should check with the kenya embassy in your country of residence,

alternatively maybe make a road trip to namanga border from arusha / kilimanjaro (about 2hrs) and obtain them and then fly to wilson, but i wonder if border would issue visa without stamping your passports,

also maybe to obtain visa from tz you would have to be in Dar...

Wilson Airport is an official entry point into the country and it does have immigration and customs. According to the immigration website one can obtain visa on entering through an official entry point, so I see no reason why you cannot get it. I tried to open the website but for some reason I cannot open it at the moment. Print out the form and fill it in in advance anyway, I am sure Wilson will not be having any queues but still.

I noticed an immigration desk at Wilson the last time I went through in 2011. So I believe you must be able to get a visa. Wilson takes international flights so this would also hint that it must have a visa issue facility as well.

You can get a visa on arrival at Wilson. I've seen private jets come in, and the passengers have been cleared with no issues.

If arriving from JRO, you certainly can get the Kenya Visa on arrival.

Know however, if arriving WIL which flight arrives at about 2:45pm, the ongoing flight to the Mara is 3pm, so a very tight connection. Best you have your forms completed, have the exact amount of payment and move quickly.

Good luck!
