Changing Airlines in Nairobi without the second boarding pas

If I fly into Nairobi on Precision and out on BA but have not been in a position to print my BA boarding pass, will I be able to do that or have an agent do that in the international transit area, or will I have to go through Kenyan immigration, get the boarding pass and then come back through. I will have only carry on luggage.

Just show your onward ticket copy to be able to transit. Head to the transit desk to get your BA boarding pass.

So I would just show a printed copy of my ticket information from BA... right?... basically a print out of the email I get from BA when I make the reservation.

Absolutely - on deplaning the Precision flight, head to the Transit Desk (airside) for them to provide the BA boarding pass.

Unless you have carryon bags, request that Precision label any checked luggage thru to the UK (check the tags); if not you'll have to get someone from the Transit Desk to assist collecting your bags to be checked from the carousel to be rechecked for the homebound BA flight. You should not have to pay for a Kenya Visa, whether Transit (USD$20), or full (USD$50). Of course if you have been earlier in Kenya you should already have a Kenya Visa in your passport.
