Busia is a town in Kenya. It is the capital and largest town of Busia County.


Busia, Kenya is located in Busia County, approximately 451 kilometres (280 mi), by road, northwest of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital and largest city. This location is immediately east of Busia, Uganda. The coordinates of Busia, Kenya are: 00°27’48.0″N, 34°06’19.0″E (Latitude:0.463333; Longitude:34.105278). Busia, Kenya sits at an average elevation of 1,227 metres (4,026 ft), above sea level


The towns of Busia, Kenya and Busia, Uganda are very busy border towns on Kenya’s border with Uganda. The towns of Malaba, Kenya and Malaba, Uganda, approximately 29 kilometres (18 mi) to the north, along with the Busia megalopolis account for the bulk of trade and human traffic between the two East African Community countries.

It is expected that in May 2016, the construction of a one-stop-border-crossing between Busia, Kenya and Busia, Uganda will conclude. The construction on the Uganda side was completed in May 2016, and that on the Kenya side concluded in July 2017. The common upgraded border crossing is expected to be commissioned on Saturday 24 February 2018, jointly by presidents Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and Yoweri Museveni of Uganda.

In 2021 it was reported that large quantities of Ugandan sugar were being smuggled into Kenya through Busia. Sugar in Kenya was more expensive but the failure of Kenyan sugar production meant that sugar could achieve an even high price.


The 2019 Kenyan census recorded Busia’s population as 71,886.
