Please read below, most commonly asked questions:
I am traveling from abroad. Where can I find visa information for my country
You will first need to check if there is an embassy in your country to obtain visa information. If not, we will organize your visa on arrival at the airport. The fees will need to be paid at immigration on arrival at the airport. Some nationalities require special clearance and therefore the applications must be submitted at least 30-45 days in advance. However, please confirm your nationality with our services department on (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Which is the hotel mentioned in your package?
Intercontinental Hotel, Nairobi
Front Desk: +254-20-3200000
How far is the hotel mentioned in your package from the exhibition center? Can I change the hotel if I do not like it?
The hotel is a two minutes drive from the exhibition centre. We have selected the best and nearest hotel as our official one and there should be no reason for disliking them. Since reservations and payments are made in advance, it will be difficult for us to make the change. However, please contact our on-site team at the venue for assistance and they will try their best to satisfy you.
Who will pick us up from the airport?
All Exhibitors who have opted for the Full package will be picked up and dropped off at the airport according to the timings mentioned in the filled forms. Please ensure you fill in the right details as our service providers will be following the chart accordingly. There will be a sign board at the airport as well as a driver with the AUTOEXPO Africa 2018 Exhibition logo name plate. Exhibitors who haven’t taken the packages can get a prepaid taxi from the airport Taxi counter.
Our Company has never been to Africa. We are slightly worried about safety and total organization of the event?
East Africa is as safe as any other region in the world. Though we would say that Africans are the friendliest people in the world, it is always necessary to take precautions no matter where you are. There is absolutely no danger to life but petty thefts are possible. You just need to take care of your expensive and personal belongings such as laptops, mobiles and watches etc. by not leaving them unattended. As far as organization is concerned, Expogroup has an experience of 19 years in Africa. Our facilities, equipment and services are unmatched in the region though they cannot be compared yet to exhibitions held in Germany and other developed countries. However, facilities are being improved every year.
What vaccination is required for entry permit to Kenya?
Please check with your travel agent and medical authorities in your country as a yellow fever vaccination certificate is a must for entry into Kenya. Without this certificate immigration officials will not allow entry into the country. For your own safety it is advisable to carry along with you a small medical kit with basic medicines.
How much money do I require to roam around with and where do I exchange?
Carry loose change in small denominations as change can be a nuisance. Small change will also help in petty miscellaneous expenses. You can either exchange your foreign currency at the Airport/ Hotel/ or the Exhibition Center. Do not exchange money on the road or at unknown places.
How can I get a mobile SIM or Internet access?
Kenya is well developed and items such as SIM cards and mobile vouchers can be availed from any phone shop or store. You can also buy it at the airport where-in you have to submit your identification. Activation is done on the spot. For international roaming you will have to consult your service provider. You can purchase a SIM card at the airport itself on arrival to save time.
