If you are travelling to Kenya, it is important for you to be prepared. For your convenience we have collected the most common vaccines necessary before traveling to Kenya. There are both mandatory vaccinations for entry and strongly recommendable vaccinations for Kenya. All of our dear delegates are required to have a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate in order to gain entry to Kenya.

Yellow fever (Mandatory)

This vaccine is a requirement to be allowed into Kenya and just as important as your passport. Notice you have to get the vaccine 10 days prior to the start date of your journey.

Diphtheria, tetanus (Lockjaw), and pertussis (Whooping Cough)

These are basic vaccines which is recommendable before traveling abroad.

Hepatitis A

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highly recommend this vaccine because you can get hepatitis A through contaminated food or water in Kenya, regardless of where you are eating or staying.

Hepatitis B

The hepatitis B infection can occur through blood transfusion, needle puncture, surgery, dental treatment, piercing, tattooing and intercourse.

Malaria

Malaria is a risk all year around in Kenya, even though the risk is low in the capital Nairobi, we recommend that you get malaria pills prescribed. You should always protect yourself against mosquitoes e.g. by sleeping under a mosquito net and using insect repellent spray. Mosquitos are most active during the sunrise and sunset which is why you should be extra attentive at these times.

Typhus

You can get typhus through contaminated food or water in Kenya. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends this vaccine for most travelers, especially if you are staying with friends or relatives, visiting smaller cities or rural areas, or if you are an adventurous eater.

Please note that the above mentioned information was taken from the official website of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Your safety and the safety of all our dear conference delegates is our top priority. It will be ensured from the moment of entry until the moment of departure from Kenyatta International Airport. Therefore the planning and future execution of the conference carried out with high involvement of local advisory.
We would like to assure the most comfortable travel for our delegates. therefore we have arranged  transportation throughout the entire conference.

To  guarantee the overall safety of all delegates, we will increase the level of security around the hotel areas, thus it is recommended for all delegates to carry their passport with them in order to access the area of the hotel easily.

For everyone’s well-being during the conference a 24- hour hotline telephone service will be available whenever advisory and help is required for special cases.

From the moment the delegates touch the ground of Kenya we will “take them through the streets of Nairobi”. We have arranged private bus transportation for the delegates between the airport and the hotel. We will greet you at the arrival terminal, accompany you to the hotel and guide you to your room. Therefore, it is significant for us to know the exact time of your arrival and departure at Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), so we are able to arrange bus transportation from and to the airport. The drive from the airport to the venue “Radisson Blu Hotel Nairobi” is approximately 30 minutes.

Time difference

Please be aware the time is GMT +3 which equals Moscow, Athens and Riyadh.

Currency and payment

The unit of the currency is the Kenyan Shilling (KES), which is divided into 100 cents. Foreign currency can be changed at banks, in the airport, currency exchange offices and hotels.It is easiest to exchange US Dollars, Pounds Sterling or Euros.

Opening hours may vary according to each bank, but generally banks in Kenya are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm. Banks and currency exchange offices at Kenyatta International Airport stay open 24 hours. International credit cards are accepted in the larger hotels, stores, and some camps and lodges. ATM’s are widely available in Nairobi and other major cities. It is not advisable to take Kenyan Shillings out of the country, as they are difficult to exchange elsewhere. Street exchange merchants should be avoided as they are operating illegally.

Communication

The international dial code for Kenya is +254. All major urban areas are covered by the mobile network; the local mobile phone operators use GSM networks that have roaming agreements with most international mobile phone operators. Internet cafes are widely available in most towns and tourist areas. Hotels usually add a hefty surcharge to their telephone bills; it is less expensive to either call from one of the international phone services, which are available in larger towns, or buy a prepaid calling card for use in public telephone booths.
