The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has announced that Ghanaians desiring to travel to Kenya will now be issued an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) free of charge.

The move is in recognition of the existing visa-free regime agreement between Kenya and Ghana.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, June 19, the Ministry said Ghanaians intending to travel to Kenya are to submit their ETA application through almetakenya.go.ke for approval prior to their departure.

The Ministry advised Ghanaians traveling to Kenya to take note of the new development.

“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.

“In that regard, Ghanaians intending to travel to Kenya are to submit their ETA application through almetakenya.go.ke for approval prior to their departure. The travelling public is hereby advised to take note of this new development accordingly.”

The ETA, which serves as official authorisation for entry into Kenya, can now be obtained without any cost. Previously, travellers had to pay a fee for this document, but the new policy eliminates that requirement.
