FRAUDULENT E-VISA APPLICATION WEBSITE
The Embassy of Republic of Kenya in Brazil wishes to alert all potential e-visa applicants to Kenya of the existence of a scam site “HYPERLINK “http://www.kenya-evisa-online.com/”http://www.kenya-evisa-online.com “. The site is designed in such a way that can be mistaken for the official Government of Kenya e-visa website, charges USD 120 for normal e-visa cases as opposed to the USD 50 charged by the Government of Kenya.
This is therefore to encourage prospective Kenya e-visa applicants to make their application through the official Government website http://evisa.go.ke/evisa.html
Note: the Government of Kenya will not be responsible for any loss of monies or extra charges occasioned through the use of the unofficial scam site.
