Single or Transit Visa

Hello,

Could someone please answer my question.

Arrive in Nairobi from Uganda,have two nights in Kenya before crossing into Tanzania, on the eigth day cross back into Kenya to travel straight to the airport to fly home.

Would a single visa obtained in Nairobi airport allow me to re-enter Kenya to catch my flight or should I buy transit visa 's.

Thankyou

The single visa would do the trick, i.e.,

allow reentry to Kenya for your trip home.

The Kenya visa is valid for 30 days and its multiple entry, so there is no need to worry.

Just to clarify, it is 'multi-entry' if you visit other East African Community countries within a single trip / holiday (it does not cover you for short trips to non-EAC countries). It is not multi-trip which is a different type of visa and one you cannot get on arrival.

Thanks Doff,

Oops I meant I can travel back into Kenya on the single entry visa that I entered on.However

I still need separate visa's for Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

Yes, you do need separate Visas for both Uganda and Tanzania, which like the Kenya Visa - can be purchased on arrival each country. Just be sure you have your Yellow Fever inoculation and proof of same for entry to/from/between these countries.

Enjoy your travels.
