What Documents Do Kenyans Need to Enter the Schengen Area?

What Documents Do Kenyans Need to Enter the Schengen Area? When Kenyan travellers show up at the border to enter the EU visa-free zone, they will be asked by the border officials to present the following documents:

  • A Kenyan Passport. It must not be older than ten years and should be valid for at least three more months beyond its intended departure date from the Schengen Area.
  • A valid Schengen Visa. You must carry your Schengen visa with you when you travel through the Schengen Area. Usually, your visa is affixed to your passport, so those two go hand in hand.
  • Evidence on their purpose of entry. You should also include documentation proving your reason why you are entering the Schengen Area.
  • Proof of sufficient financial means. Documentation that proves you have enough financial means to visit the Schengen Area.

EU/Schengen border officials may also ask for other information and documents such as proof of accommodation, how long you intend to stay, round-trip airline ticket, travel insurance, invitation letter, etc.

Please keep in mind that the border guard has the final say on whether a traveller should be permitted to enter the Schengen Zone or not. If your entry is approved, you will receive a stamp with the date indicating your arrival in the country.
