Kenya Visa Cut By 50 per cent
Kenya offers even better value as Visa fees are reduced by 50%
By TTM on 19 March 2009 in News
The Minister of Tourism for Kenya, Hon. Najib Balala, has announced that entry visa rates are to be reduced by 50% and completely cut for children under 16 from 1st April 2009 until the end of 2010.
This bold move is to make Kenya even more appealing for visitors and to further attract the growing family market. The visa cost has been reduced from $50 to $25 and with no cost for children under 16, so a family of four will now only have to pay $50 for the two adults, offering a saving of $150.
“With beautiful beaches and thrilling safaris, Kenya has a lot to offer families. This scheme will help to keep costs down for all when planning a trip to our diverse country and particularly benefit those travelling with children,” comments Hon. Najib Balala.
Hon. Najib Balala, who has been in office since April 2008, was recently awarded the title ‘Africa Tourism Minister of the year’ at the ‘Africa Tourism Investors Summit’ in Maputo, Mozambique in February 2009 due to his efforts in leading the tourism recovery programme in Kenya in 2008 and raising Kenya’s tourism profile as a global leader in sustainable tourism.
