Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has said that Ghanaian travellers to Kenya will no longer pay Electronic Travel Authorisation (eTA) fees.

This, according to the Ministry, is because of Ghana’s visa-free regime agreement with Kenya.

The Ministry, in a statement issued on Wednesday, June 19, 2024, said, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to inform the public that the Republic of Kenya in recognition of the existing visa-free regime agreement between the Republic of Kenya and the Republic of Ghana has informed that Ghanaian travellers will now be issued an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) on gratis upon application for travel to Kenya.”

It further directed that Ghanaians intending to travel to Kenya submit their eTA application through for approval before their departure.

“The travelling public is hereby advised to take note of this new development accordingly,” the statement concluded.

What is the Kenya eTA?
Travelers need travel authorization to visit Kenya for Tourism. Visa-exempt visitors entering Kenya must obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).
Travelers can submit the eTA application online. Once the application is approved, travelers receive their eTA confirmation electronically.
A valid eTA is required to board the flight. If the eTA is expired or doesn’t match the traveler’s passport information, travelers will not be able to board their flight.
How long does it take for the Kenyan eTA to be approved?

Most applications are approved within 10 business days. Governments do not guarantee processing times, so be sure to submit your application as early as possible.
