What you need to know before travelling to Kenya from South Africa

Upon arrival in Kenya, travellers will need to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate conducted no longer than 96 hours before their departure from their home country. This negative PCR test certificate will generate a Trusted Travel (TT) code which you will get after you’ve created a TT account.

To enter the country body temperatures need to be below 37.5°C, and if there has been a reported COVID-19 case on a flight, all passengers who were seated within two rows of the infected passenger will need to quarantine at designated airport hotels.

It is mandatory that all travellers arriving in Kenya fill-in the Travellers Health Surveillance Form provided by the Ministry of Health. After filling the form in passengers will receive a QR code and will be required to display it to a Port Health Official to proceed to immigration.

Once you’ve entered the country make sure to follow the basic social distancing and sanitising protocol.

Kenyan Airways resumed international flights on 1 August 2020 and all in and out-bound passengers need to provide a negative COVID-19 test certificate conducted 72 hours before boarding their flight.

All passengers aboard any Emirates flight require a negative COVID-19 certificate, obtained no later than 96 hours prior to flight departure.
