Kenya, South Africa to begin visa-free system in January

Kenya and South Africa have agreed that starting January 1, 2023, Kenyan ordinary passport holders will be allowed to enter South Africa visa-free for up to 90 days a year. The two countries have also settled on a return policy when immigration laws are breached.

South Africans already get free visas on arrival in Kenya, while Kenyans were charged and required to provide proof of sufficient funds and return flight tickets.

The new agreement, which is set to take effect on January 1, was announced during the first official trip of South African President Cyril Ramaphosa to Kenya on Wednesday.
