Before completing the form, please reach this guide to understand how to fill out the travel health certificate when applying for a Kenya e-Visa.
According to the Kenyan law under the Public Health Act CAP 242, all foreigners intending to visit Kenya will provide certain information to a Port Health Officer by submitting an online form before departing their home country.
