KENYA - A passport and visa are required. Visas may be obtained in advance, or are available for purchase at the Jomo Kenyatta Airport for U.S. citizens. Travelers who opt to purchase a visa at the airport may experience delays and should be prepared to pay in USD (cash). The current fee for a single entry visa is $25. To pre-purchase a visa, contact the Embassy of Kenya, 2249 R Street NW, Washington, DC 20008, telephone (202) 387-6101 , or the Kenyan Consulates General in Los Angeles and New York City. Travelers to Kenya should ensure that the validity of their passports is at least six months beyond the end of their intended stay, and that their passport contains at least 3 blank pages for visas and immigration stamps. Passengers continuing onto Tanzania, and connecting in Nairobi, Kenya for their final departure flight to the US do not require a transit or multiple entry visa. A single entry visa is valid for connecting flights. Passengers continuing onto Tanzania from Kenya must carry proof of yellow fever vaccination.

Hi, you will not require any photos to get your visa at the airport. The only inconvienience will be if they are too many planes arriving at the same time you might to wait in for a long time for other guests to be served. So many guests opt to buy the visas before arrival.
no. visas have no photos.
Most of these posts are inaccurate!

You DO NOT need photos when applying for your visa on arrival at Jomo Kenyatta - just a completed application form, which is worth downloading and filling in before you leave (saves the usual scrum of people filling them at the airport). The fee is $25, for a single entry (3 month) visa, but you tend to be told, by the airline that it is $50. It is supposed to be increased from July this year, so bear that in mind. You should take $ to pay this, as immigration frequently decline other currencies.

Photos are required when applying for your visa in advance. If you are unsure, check the Kenyan Embassy/High Commission website as details are given there. You can also print the application forms from this site.

Getting a visa in advance, doesn't really mean less queueing on arrival!
Yes. Visa's.here you require 2 photos one for record at Iliad that you were there the other 4 yourself. You satisfied?
