Kenya lifts quarantine restrictions on UK travellers

Travellers from the UK are now able to visit Kenya without quarantining on arrival into the country.

The change was made by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority, removing the UK from the list of countries whose visitors will be placed on a seven day self-quarantine upon arrival.

The move comes a week after UK removed Kenya from the red list following measures to mitigate against spread of Covid-19 pandemic in the country.

Under the new advisory, visitors arriving in the country over the age of five are required to present a negative PCR test, taken within 96 hours before travel.

Arrivals from the UK will also be required to submit daily health information for 14 consecutive days while in Kenya.

Kenya Tourism Board chief executive Betty Radier said: “As one of our key markets, we are thrilled to be able to welcome back visitors from the UK to experience everything that magical Kenya has to offer.

 “With restrictions now removed, we look forward to having even more visitors from the UK explore our beautiful country again.”
