single entry or double entry visa?

Hello, I'm flying into Nairobi then go to Tanzania for a week, then go back to Nairobi for three days, then fly back. Do I need to pay the extra $50 dollars for multiple entry Kenya Visa? It seems so expensive to me. (

I think......the $50 is a multiple entry fee.......because most people use Nairobi as an entry point prior to going into Tanzania etc., and then have to return to Nairobi prior to heading back home.....

I will re-check this in my passport, when i get home later today...

Just the $50 Single Entry visa.

The $50 will cover you for the overnight in NBO on arrival before continuing to Tanzania and the 3-days in NBO on the return.

And, if you do get to Zambia, then returning to NBO to connect with your homebound flight, you'll probably not even leave the secure area for transit passengers.

Did Kenya and Tanzania last November. Single entry visa was fine. The visa is stamped 'single journey' so it allowed us to leave Nairobi, go to Tanzania, return to Kenya, leave the airport and go to dinner.

A single entry Kenya visa is OK as long as you don't leave Kenya/Tanzania/Uganda, so when re-entering Kenya from Tanzania you should be fine, but since you're also going to Namibia and Zambia, you'll need either a multi entry ($100) or purchase a second single entry ($50) upon re-entering Kenya from those 2 countries.

There's also a transit visa for Kenya ($20) which you may qualify for if any of your stays in Kenya is short enough. And if you're just connecting intl to intl without entering the country, then you don't need another visa.

What's your exact schedule and flight/travel plans?
