23 Visa-Free Island Countries For Kenyan Citizens

Travel is freedom. Watching waves on an island, while sipping on a tropical juice of your choice is slightly more fun than responding to emails all afternoon. Sometimes, however, our dreams of travelling get put on hold, as we start to think about those pesky negatives; VISAS! Gather documents. Go to the consulate. Have interview potentially. Stressful is an understatement.

We’re here to ask a simple question; why so stressed? There are 68 countries in the world that don’t require a visa for Kenyan citizens, of which 23 are island paradises.

Take a look at this comprehensive list of EVERY.SINGLE.ISLAND you can travel to visa-free. Cause every plan starts with a dream!

The home of the first ever bungee jumping tribe and cannibalism (until 1969 that is), Vanuatu is a culture shock like no other. With almost 100 different languages being spoken on this island we consider the distance to get there nothing in comparison to the experiences to be had.

An interesting one for travellers as we get to see first-hand the kind of destruction an active volcano can cause. With half the island falling under an exclusion zone (no entry zone) due to potential volcanic activity, you can immediately see why more than half the islands citizens were forced to flee in the 1990’s. Stay safe out there travellers!

Ending off with one of the more popular islands; the Caymans. Brought to fame by television and movies alike for its ‘off-shore’ financial benefits, the Caymans should not be written off as a tax haven only.
