The year 2020 has been quite a difficult year for the travel industry world wide. Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 travel has been put on hold. Now the world is slowly opening up and allowing travel again and we have to adjust to a ‘new normal’ of traveling. We have to follow certain guidelines to ensure the safety of both travellers and staff.
Therefore we would like to make you aware of those guidelines. Below you will find the guidelines set by the government for all hospitality facilities and entities. You can also find the Nakupendakenya guidelines we will be upholding during safaris and day trips.
The most important things to remember during these time are the following:
- Foreign guests shall present evidence of a Covid-19 free certificate/clearance not older than 72 hours whilst entering the country;
- Guests’ temperatures will be checked regularly. Guests with a temperature higher than 37,5 ℃ or 98,6 ℉ will not be allowed to enter the premises and swift action will be taken to inform medical/health officers;
- In public guests are required to wear PPE (personal protective equipment) ie. masks, face shield;
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently;
- Avoid physical contact;
- Keep 1,5m distance.
- Kenya’s Ministry of Health announced all passengers over the age of 18 arriving and entering Kenya will need to present a valid certificate of COVID-19 vaccination effective immediately. All passengers exiting Kenya will also need to present a valid certificate of COVID-19 vaccination
- Incoming Travelers are required to have a QR code for a completed Travelers Health Surveillance Form which they can access from the website https://ears.health.go.ke/airline_registration/. When they register on the website, the code is sent to their email.
- The Kenya Ministry of Health launched the Trusted Travel (TT) Initiative: https://africacdc.org/trusted-travel/. At this time, the QR code is for arriving passengers and the TT code is for those departing. Travelers can get the TT code with their test results from an accredited lab at any major hospital.
