Plastic Bags Ban PDF Print E-mail

It is now illegal to use, manufactucture or import plastic carrier bags.

All plastic carrier bags are banned with no exception and this includes "Duty Free" plastic bags which will have to be left at the point of entry.

Certain exemptions have been accorded to manufacturers of certain plastics e.g. primary packaging in direct contact with the product.

Whilst there are indications that the first point of call shall be to ensure compliance amongst manufacturers and wholesalers/retails of the plastic before moving to the “common man”, it is important for all visitors to Kenya to avoid bringing in any on their trip.
