This is the most inexpensive type of visa since it is only valid for 72 hours. This visa will help you enter Kenya if you are at the middle of your destination and this is a flight stop. Many times this stop can last several hours or even a day.
In this case, you should prefer this type of visa that will allow you to get out of airport as long as you are going to stay less than 72 hours. In order to apply for this visa, you will definitely need your ongoing trip details and thus your flight ticket.
