It is not a secret that Kenya has one of the most beautiful sights in the world, it is simply magical.

It is good though for Kenyans to also travel out of the country to other destinations where they can enjoy flora and fauna found across the globe, that way they can also appreciate more what is found at home.

And the good thing is Kenya has one of the strongest passports in the Africa.

In Africa, Seychelles has the most powerful passport with 130 countries allowing its citizens to travel visa free with the passport.

The Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index is a global ranking of countries according to the travel freedom that their citizens enjoy and in 2017 ranked the Kenyan passport 68th in the world according to the Index.

The Index is produced in cooperation with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which maintains the world’s largest database of travel information, and is published annually.


As of 1 January 2017, Kenyan citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 69 countries and territories.

Islands like Cayman Islands also don't require a Visa for one to travel to, so the actual number of countries Kenyans can travel easily to is actually much higher.
