The Ministry of Health in Kenya has laid out requirements for travelers jetting in and traveling out of the country. Key among the requirements, is a genuine COVID-19 negative test certificate from authorized laboratories.

In recent times, there has been reported cases of Kenyans bearing fake COVID-19 certificates, trying to travel out of the country. To curb this tendency, the government has employed the technical support of PanaBIOS, a bioscreening platform, to generate Trusted Travel (TT) codes digitally verified by airlines and port health authorities.
