Help with a visa

went to a travel agents last week

She said they can do visas to kneya for about 50 quid but she never got back to me

Just wondered if you can get them for less and what the procedure is

Thanks

There is very little advantage, if any, to getting a visa in advance plus it costs more, you have to pay for special delivery mail both ways, get passport photos and pay for a postal order.

You don't need any of that to get one on arrival and it's easy. You can pay in sterling it's £30. It helps if you have downloaded the form and completed it in advance so you can get straight into the queue, details of where to download it and more info in the FAQ about Visa on Arrival on the top right of this page

Thanks

So your saying you just download the form fill it out and pay at the airport rather then the travel agents making a profit on it

Do you do it at the airport at Kenya or the UK

Will have a look at the FAQ section soon

Thanks

Thanks Doff; found the link

Just one minor problem I can see

I will probably book a room for 2 nights before I arrive then chance hotel/ B+B or just rent an apartment when I get there

The form asks this!

7.Full names and addresses of Hotels/Places/Firms/Friends or Relatives to be visited in Kenya (Physical address)

Could this cause a problem?

Just put the name of any hotel you are staying at. We always put Nairobi Serena(because we mostly stay there). No-one checks. Use that if needs be. Or any hotel you happen to book.
