Effective immediately, Kenya’s Department of Immigration Services is requiring foreign workers to register prior to having their work permit endorsed. Once their work permit is issued, foreign nationals must schedule an appointment to register as foreigners. During this in-person appointment, foreign nationals will register and have their work permits endorsed as well. This appointment is expected to last approximately one hour. The goal of this change is to improve tracking of foreign nationals through registration procedures.
