Every foreign national in Kenya who is the holder of a work permit is required to visit the Immigration Department to have their documents verified between May 21, 2018 and July 21, 2018.

What exactly is required?

The holders should physically present themselves at the Immigration Department since biometric data collection is part of the process. After the verification process, e-permits will be introduced.

The following original documents must be presented:

  • Work permit;
  • Valid official endorsement on passport;
  • Valid alien card;
  • Official payment receipt;
  • KRA pin.


Employers should ensure that their foreign national employees attend the Immigration Department with the required documents by July 21, 2018.
