Today I am excited to have Monicah guest post on 73 Visa Free Countries, Visa on Arrival and E-visa for Kenyan citizens. Monicah is one of my blogger friends from Nairobi and has interviewed me before on her blog. To read more about that article, click here.
Exciting topic, isn’t it? A point to note is that a travel passport document is a must requirement when leaving your country and entering another. A passport holds your identity and is issued by your local government. Read more on how to get a passport here. A Visa, on the other hand, is issued by the government of the country you are visiting to allow you to stay there for a specific period.
So, I had to look up Kenyan citizens visa-free countries and visa a must countries. The internet has some pretty amazing findings. Did you know, Kenyan citizens have Visa Free entry to 72 out of the 195 countries in the world? The Kenyan Passport is therefore ranked 69th on the travel freedom list. For countries that do not require a Visa, several have a limit of allowed stay.
For countries that require Visa, some countries allow you to apply on arrival, others online while for others, you must visit the embassy and await approval. From stories I’ve heard, obtaining a Visa to certain countries can be quite the hustle in terms of requirements and cost as well. Some countries will even deny you Visa because they despise a certain race. So it is simply amazing knowing there are countries which you can visit Visa free.
