Kenyan President, William Ruto officially announced on 12 December 2023 the removal of visa requirements for all global citizens effective 01 January 2024. As an alternative to traditional visas, all guests, even those who were previously exempt from visa requirements, will need to acquire an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) at a reduced cost. To implement this policy, a digital platform will be developed to identify all travellers in advance through an electronic system. Once identified, guests will obtain an ETA, streamlining the entry process. The decision to eliminate visa requirements stemmed from a recent scientific discovery that Turkana County, located in the former Rift Valley Province of Kenya, is the cradle of mankind.
