How To Check and Verify The Authenticity of a Kenya Visa

We have gotten so many complaints from our users and clients on how banks could not verify or confirm their Kenya visa. This mishap had hindered many travelers from getting the desired PTAs they needed for their travel. So in this article, we will be sharing some tips on how to verify/confirm Kenya visa status online. This will help travelers, particularly the banks and other agencies, to check the authenticity of a Kenya visa.

In one of our blog posts, we explained how applicants can apply for a Kenya visa online. And we mentioned that Nigerians and some foreign nationals can no longer get a Kenya visa on arrival. They need to apply online and wait for visa approval to get the visa issued. The sum of $52.79 is paid as visa fee and this does not guarantee that your Kenya visa will be issued automatically.

  • Input the visa application number which starts with SEV or EAT, depending on the visa category. Be careful when entering the reference number – sometimes, zero may appear as alphabet O.
  • Input Your ID Number which is the email address or passport number you used when you signed up on the Kenya portal the first time. This may not be the applicant’s email address/passport number. Most times, it is the agent’s ID number or the user’s. To know the ID number, download the Kenyan receipt to see the details.
  • Finally, click on the “Search” button to check the validity/authenticity of the Kenya visa. The visa details will come up like the one shown below.
