Kenya’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has lifted all flight restrictions between the United Kingdom and the East African country.
The British High Commission in Kenya was notified in a formal letter on June 9, and the lifting of the flight ban is immediate.
The UK has traditionally been one of Kenya’s top-five tourism source markets, recording 181 484 UK visitors in 2019, according to a recent report by Kenya’s Business Daily.
The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority noted that all arriving passengers from the UK should be in possession of a valid COVID-19 negative PCR test, conducted within 96 hours prior to travelling.
Passengers and crew must also isolate for seven days on arrival in the country and will have to take a second PCR test four days after arrival.
