In order to prevent the importation of new Covid-19 variants, the Ministry of Health
has rolled out stringent measures that include a digital system for verification of
COVID-19 test results christened “Trusted Travel”. Through this platform, airlines and
Port Health Authorities are able to validate test results of travelers.

A person intending to travel to Kenya must visit an authorized laboratory in the country of departure for COVID-19 PCR test within 96 hours before departure and acquire a Covid negative certificate. The traveler is required to visit for guidance on uploading the test results (see attached travel guide part 2).

Upon arrival at the airport, travelers in the country are required to provide a digital COVID -19 certificate for validation. Airlines are encouraged to confirm traveler’s compliance prior to boarding. Any traveler who will not have complied will not be cleared for entry into the country, and will be the responsibility of the concerned airline.

In addition to the above, travelers are also required to submit their Travelers Health
Surveillance form online through the “jitenge” platform prior to disembarking.

Travelers can download the jitenge app on Google Play Store or access the forms
online by typing “Jitenge MOH” on any browser; or through the link and complete the online registration
form. Upon registration into the platform, the traveler will be issued with a QR code
that should be presented at the health desk upon arrival into the country. They are
also expected to self-monitor and report daily on the same platform for fourteen (14)
days while in Kenya.
