Cultural Tour

This year, ISFA are including a cultural tour  alongside their educational events. The cultural tour will take place between Nairobi and Mombasa on the 30th September- 2nd October 2017. The cultural tour will entail two game park drives to allow exhibitors the opportunity to further explore and understand African culture. This is also emphasised by the community experience included within the tour. Exhibitors have the chance to get to know fellow educators, networking and expanding their knowledge. This is a great opportunity to truly understand and relate to educators and students.

The cultural tour includes: transportation to and from Nairobi, all meals, accommodation in a 4 star hotel for two nights, all activities.

It is your responsibility to ensure you have reviewed the procedures for attaining the correct visa from the country of your passport.

If a letter of invitation is required please contact us now so we can make the appropriate arrangements or advise in some cases agencies that can help.

Please check visa requirements for your passport at your local High Commission/ Embassy. Citizens of most countries can receive a single tourist entry visa at the airport in both Kenya and Tanzania at 50 USD (there is a requirement to bring an exact amount of cash in USD; they won’t be able to give any change at the airport Customs). Please note that Visas are not issued at South African ports of entry. Your passport must also be valid for minimum period of 6 months from date of entry and you will need blank pages for the visas to be inserted. Please note that ISFA can’t be hold responsible for any information above re: the visa.
