Flights from India to Kenya can now resume, according to the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA).
International Travel Update: International travelers may breathe a sigh of relief as the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) said on Thursday that the African country has reopened its borders to Indian visitors, which had been restricted for a brief while owing to the second wave of Covid-19.
The interim restriction on passenger flights from India was lifted after a brief time of suspension in May this year due to a surge in the Covid-19 epidemic in the nation, according to KTB in a statement.
According to the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA), flights from India to Kenya may now resume, providing a boost to trips that have been hampered by the Covid-19 epidemic.
Travelers from India are free from quarantine if they have negative PCR-based Covid-19 test results obtained 96 hours before departure, according to the statement. The visa application procedure will stay online in order to improve mitigation efforts against the pandemic.
Furthermore, the statement added that the yellow fever vaccination remains a requirement for all Indian visitors of all ages, thus travelers would also need to have a current immunization card upon their arrival in Kenya.
