Kenya has added more countries to the list of countries from which travelers will be exempted from the mandatory quarantine upon arrival.
The list, which earlier included only Canada, South Korea, Namibia, Uganda, China, Rwanda, Morocco, Japan, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, and Switzerland has now been amended also to include the United States of America (except the states of California, Florida, and Texas), United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, and Italy.
All arriving passengers on international flights whose temperatures are not above 37.5 degrees and do not exhibit flu-like symptoms, and have a negative PCR based COVID-19 test carried out within 96 hours before travel and are from countries considered low to medium-risk, will not be subject to mandatory quarantine.
Furthermore, passengers arriving on flights after the curfew, with a valid boarding pass and air ticket, will be allowed to proceed to their residences.
A review of the countries from which travelers will not be required to be quarantined upon arrival will be undertaken daily by the Ministry of Health.
