Kenya with kids with care
New visa and park fees
Beginning in February, the Kenya Ministry of Tourism has waived the visa fee for kids of all nationalities under the age of 16. Visa fees start at US$50 a person for those 16 and up. Also, the Kenya Wildlife Service has capped park fees at US$60, down from US$90. According to tourism board figures, the number of visitors to Kenya fell by 25 percent in the first five months of 2015 following increased attacks by Islamist militants in recent years. Global Affairs Canada urges Canadian travellers to exercise “a high degree of caution” and advises against travel near the Somalia, Ethiopia, South Sudan borders as well as the Eastleigh neighbourhood of Nairobi, but a nationwide advisory isn’t in effect.
