The Australian government has issued a travel warning to its citizens, saying they should exercise a high degree of caution in Kenya due to the threat of terrorism and violent crime. 

The travel warning issued at the beginning of April is still in place.

“Terrorists continue to maintain a strong interest in attacking foreigners in Nairobi and other major population centres in Kenya,” reads the advisory note.

“Attacks could occur at any time, with little or no warning.”

Australia said its citizens should avoid areas prone to attack and remain vigilant if visiting public areas.

Kenya received 1,95 million international tourists in 2023, compared to 1,38 million in 2022.

The majority of tourists came from the United States, Uganda, Tanzania, the United Kingdom, and India.

Tourism is Kenya’s third-biggest foreign exchange earner after remittances and agricultural exports.

Kenya is expecting to receive 2.4 million tourists in 2024 and earns $1.8 billion in tourist receipts.
