arrival at Nairobi airport w/o visa

We're arriving without a visa so will have to get in the right line for this ... are the lines clearly marked?

If this sounds like an odd Q I'm just remembering the Kilimanjaro airport where there is one line for those with visas and another for those who have to buy the visa, and little or no signage telling which is which (unless it's changed). Often people discover they are in the wrong line only when they reach the counter ... so how about Nairobi?

As Patty said, they are clearly marked.

Just a suggestion, if you download and fill out a visa app. ahead of time, you'll zip through the line a lot faster.

Here's two websites for the visa app.

We arrived at Nairobi in September with Visas, which took a lot of time to get from the embassy in London. It took longer to get through with visa than without. Based on this it is evident that you can get a visa on arrival,I would not waste time and effort to get one in advance should I ever go back to Kenya. The same applies to Tanzania.

As you walk down the ramp to Immigration, for those already with visas, the windows right in front of them. How many are open will vary.

For those who have to purchase visas, it's a counter to the far right or far left. I've found them on both end, but whichever, it is clearly marked.

The area in Nairobi is also larger than at JRO and the signage is better.

Once visa has been stamped into passport, you walk behind the counter and down the stairs to baggage claim.
