tourist visa for kenya

Has any Canadian recently got a tourist visa at the airport in Nairobi,Kenya? Did it go smoothly? It seems like a lot of effort to get it beforehand in Canada.

Though a US Passport holder, it's the same for Canadians... easy enough to purchase Visa on arrival. There's no reason to do so before departure.

A few years ago I got mine through a passport service. I was nervous being my first time. It was scary sending your passport away, but the expense was the worst part - very expensive.

We are going again in September and will be getting upon arrival for sure!

(Although a US passport holder) We got our upon arrival. Other than waiting in line, it was painless. We arrived late at night and had to wait about 15 minutes in line to get our visa and get our passport stamped. Our luggage was still not at baggage claim when we were done getting our visa. So, I would say the wait is not too long.

we are also Americans and traveled to Kenya in October, 2011. We walked up to the window, paid our money and received our visa. The people of many citizenships on our flight from Zurich and they all had the same experience. Buy it when you arrive.
