Dear Kamie,

I am an Tour Operator, I went to pick my client at Namanga Border by Bus they were arriving from Nairobi. All 11 of them
I took their Passports and U$50 and came back with stamp less then half an hour. You see if you have a pick at Namanga who can help you in this process its that easy!!!

Do you 'jump' the people in front in the queue?
My husband and I went through with visas and it still took us more than an
hour to get through because of the time they were taking processing the
people in front of us - all nationals except for one resident, all seemed to
have the correct paperwork, it just seemed to take a long time for each
person to be processed.

What exactly does one need when applying for Visa at the border? I have
found out that I have to apply at the border for both Kenya and Tanzania.
Ahhh! I hope my tour group doesn't leave me behind.

You need a passport and US$50 cash. Bring your certificate of
immunization against yellow fever. It is unlikely they will ask for it,
but you never know.

What kind of tour group are you on? On the legs that I used
overlanders, we always waited for people to get visas at the border
crossings. I can't think of anyone on those tours who got their visas
in advance. The shuttles between Nairobi and Arusha work the same way.

OK, so you were lucky.
Nothing to do with having someone waiting for you.
If there had been a big queue you'd have taken longer, or much longer.
Or am I missing something?

Not me.
I've been there *once*.

I accept that we may have been unlucky with the big queue in front of us,
but I wanted to be sure that it was "having someone to meet you" which would
make the difference.
Clearly it isn't.
It's just down to luck, as with any other queueing situation.

Why waste time being irritated?
Why follow a thread if it isn't of interest or relevance?
Life's too short.
Feel free to KF me, if you haven't already.
