While some countries make it hard to discern exactly what products can and cannot be shipped through their borders, Kenya publishes a straightforward and easy to understand list of prohibited and restricted imports. This list is made available through their Revenue Authority. Prohibited items include counterfeit money, pornographic material, some types of matches, certain essential oils, narcotic drugs, specific industrial and agricultural chemicals, hazardous waste and counterfeit products.
In addition to the prohibited products, there are restrictions on other types of imports. These restrictions apply to shipments that include:
The full and informative list of Kenyan restrictions can be found here.
Anything that is sent must comply with labelling laws that are administered by the Kenyan Bureau of Standards. Because the United Kingdom is such a strong trading partner, it is possible to obtain proper accreditation locally. Kenya licenses two British companies to inspect products and issue proper certifications for import. The main purpose of this program is to ensure that no substandard goods enter the country.
Besides these requirements, Kenya remains quite open and easy to work with, especially for strong trading partners like the United Kingdom. The country encourages a strong relationship with British companies, both in importation and investment. This makes importing here quite straightforward.
Until 1963, Kenya was under the umbrella of British leadership. The country became independent at that time but was largely dominated by a single political party with strong leadership. This continued well into the 1980s when multiple parties began to vie for power and influence in the Kenyan government. While this led to a more open and diverse policy, it also caused civil unrest as rivals fought over who would be in control of the African nation. By 2002, Mwai Kibaki ended up ahead, leading the nation into a new era of increased prosperity. Surprisingly, Kenya actually has the highest GDP in the immediate region.
As a trading power, Kenya has a lot to offer. The United Kingdom has always been one of it's most important trading partners, a fact that has remained since independence. Located on the equator, it has a beautiful and mild climate with stunning landscapes, making it a mecca for tourism. This industry accounts for about two-thirds of the GDP, with a good portion of visitors coming from Britain and surrounding European nations. Agriculture remains a major part of the economy, with the country producing major crops of tea, coffee, flowers, corn, cotton, sugar cane and tropical fruits, whilst it also has strong financial and manufacturing sectors.
