Kenya Travel Advice - Added 12th September 2011 - Updated 9th March 2020 - Current 9th March 2020

Some governments are advising against all but essential travel to parts of Kenya.

This includes areas within 60km of the Kenya-Somali border:

  • Garissa County
  • Lamu County (excluding Lamu Island and Manda Island)
  • areas of Tana River County north of the Tana river itself
  • within 15km of the coast from the Tana river down to the Galana (Athi-Galana-Sabaki) river

You must carry a form of ID with you at all the times. A copy of your passport is normally acceptable, but recently some police officers have been insisting on the original document.

Please follow the travel advice of your Government:
