Kenya launches e-Passport centres to serve diaspora

In its bid to serve Kenyans in diaspora, the Kenyan government has launched e-passport centres in other countries, starting with South Africa, United Kingdom, France, UAE and China.

With more centres to be announced later, Foreign Affairs Secretary, Monica Juma said, “We mounted the e-passport infrastructure last week. Kenyans are encouraged to get in touch with the missions for modalities of this process.”

With this development, Kenyans abroad will not have to return to Kenya to renew their passports. They can simply access the Immigration Department’s portal and follow instructions to renew and apply for new Kenyan passports.
