This is according to Kenya’s High Commission in South Africa.
Kenya slapped strict visa requirements on visitors from South Africa in June, citing the “principle of reciprocity”.
But for now, South Africans visiting Kenya for up to 30 days do not require visas.
Though Kenyans have always needed visas prior to entering South Africa, the latter has implemented stricter immigration controls in recent months. This has not gone down well with the Kenyan authorities.
Should Kenya’s new rules still come into effect, South Africans would need to have a return air ticket and to pay a service charge of $70 each time they apply for a visa.
