Kenya Waives Visa Requirement for Zimbabwe Nationals, Boosting Travel and Trade

1 min read

Zimbabwean travelers will now be able to enter Kenya without the need for a visa, as announced by Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade spokesperson, Michael Chiwoneso Mukura. The removal of Zimbabwe from Kenya’s Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) requirements marks a positive step towards enhancing travel and trade relations between the two nations.

“The Ministry wishes to inform the public that the government of Kenya no longer requires Zimbabwean travelers to pay for an ETA when they apply to visit Kenya,” Mukura stated, highlighting the streamlined process for Zimbabwean visitors to obtain authorization digitally.

President William Ruto, who visited Zimbabwe in April, emphasized the importance of promoting intra-African trade to stimulate economic growth. His directive to eliminate visa requirements for all countries and introduce a new digital registration platform has not only simplified travel procedures but also led to increased tourist arrivals in Kenya.

“It shall no longer be necessary for any person from any corner of the globe to carry the burden of applying for a visa to come to Kenya,” President Ruto affirmed, underlining the government’s commitment to facilitating seamless travel experiences.

With the recent exemption for Zimbabweans and other nations like Ethiopia, Eritrea, and South Africa from visa requirements, Kenya is poised to see a surge in tourism and trade activities, fostering closer ties and mutual benefits between countries in the region.
