​​​•​ Kenya's immigration system provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Most​ business travelers must apply for an eVisa to enter the country. Port-of-entry immigration officers will determine the authorized length of stay in Kenya (usually a maximum of 30 days, extendable twice for 30 days each at the Immigration Department in Kenya; for a maximum of​ 9​0 days​).​
 
•​ The Special Pass allows foreign nationals to conduct work activities for up to 90 days. Special Pass applications are filed at the Kenya Immigration Department Headquarters before the foreign national travels to Kenya.
 
•​ The long-term work permit (Class D Permit) is suitable for skilled and experienced professionals or technical workers; it requires sponsorship from a Kenyan legal entity. Work permits are issued for one or two years ​and can be renewed for similar periods.​​
