When Entering Kenya
When you get off the plane at Jomo Kenyatta Airport, you should have these items within easy reach, since you will be asked by the customs inspector to show some or all of them:
- Online Visa (E-Visa) which you purchased and downloaded before your trip.
You will stand in line to have your passport stamped. Then proceed to baggage claim and claim all of your luggage. Proceed to customs near the exit.
When you reach the customs inspector’s counter, you should already have your luggage unlocked in the event the inspector asks to look through your bags. Place all bags (including handbags, purses, attaché cases, and camera cases) on the counter. Answer all of questions respectfully. Remain patient and courteous.
Proceed through the exit when someone from Firewind Ministries will be waiting to pick you up.
When Returning to the United States
Remember that you are not permitted to bring animals, plants, or fruit back into the United States.
While in flight to the United States, the flight attendant will give you a customs declaration form. List all items (and their costs) that you purchased abroad and are bringing back into the United States. Each person is allowed $300 duty-free purchases. In other words, you will not have to pay a tax unless the total cost of purchases exceeds $300.
