Top Tips

First, on the Kenyan side, you’ll have your yellow fever certificate checked before entering into a sit down/stand up immigration queue. After your stamp, head to the Horohoro post in about a 5-minute walk away before again having your certificate checked. If you need to buy a visa, you’ll need to complete a blue form and pay someone in a separate office (effectively skipping the remaining queues).
Be sure to bring your yellow fever certificate as well as the correct amount of post-2006 US dollars for the visa fee (if you haven’t already organised yours in advance).
To change money, once you’ve been stamped into , start walking out of the car park towards the main exit gate. Someone should approach you pretty quickly. At the time of writing, KES1,000 was TZS20,000.
