Visa on arrival was withdrawn when the evisa system was introduced at the beginning of September last year, but it was reintroduced about a week later and is still available

Still available!

Thank you.

I am really worried about it.

Should I prepare anything for Visa?

Just download and complete the application form (Form 22) from here

http://www.immigration.go.ke/Resources.html

and complete it in advance.

If you look at the visa section of the Information page on the same website it says Visas are available at Ports of Entry

It looks like it's still the case that you can get one on arrival (http://www.immigration.go.ke/Information.html). I've seen references to $50 USD, 40 EUR, £30 and that you can pay in cash/card, however most posts I've read said people pay in USD notes. Will £30 in cash be accepted, or will we be forced to pay USD? Given the lack of strength of the £, it's cheaper for us to pay in £.

Yes it's available and yes you can pay £30

(Btw I don't think you've ever been able to pay by card, that just applies to the online eVisa)

Using GBP is a good option too given the current exchange rate - cheaper than paying in USD.
