Kenya Announces Ban on Plastic Bags

The Government of Kenya announced a ban on the use, manufacture and import of all plastic bags.

Kenya today is the 11th country to take action in support of the UN Environment campaign. In Africa, Rwanda and Morocco have already banned plastic bags and other countries are set to announce measures in the coming weeks.

In supporting the Kenyan government’s environmental law, we would like to notify all our valued guests, partners and supporters that any travellers entering the country should not use any and all forms of ‘disposable’ plastic carry bags.

This would include any plastic being found in both the guest’s main luggage as well as hand luggage to prevent any inconveniences on arrival into Kenya.

In addition, please kindly note that when guests purchase duty free goods before entering Kenya, they will be required to leave their duty free plastic carry bags at the port of entry.

For more information please visit the NEMA website or review their PDF attachment .

Thank you for continued support and understanding to support our environment.
