Kenya Immigration So you want to come to Europe?

NOTE: Much has changed with UK immigration, so the notes below are as a guide and insight into the previous system. For up to date immigration information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website

Immigration from Kenya into Europe is not that easy.  Just getting a visa to leave the country is hard enough, let alone be granted European entry.  Despite its long British history, if you are from Kenya and want to come to UK, its a minefield of obstructions and delays.Your first approach and the best way to get a feel for European countries like UK, is to seek a two year working holiday maker visa.    These are the easiest to obtain but only if you are between 17 and 30 years of age.

For UK specific immigration :
