The Kenyan Embassy in Washington DC has announced that Kenyans in the US and Mexico can now be able to apply for the new Kenyan passport at their premises. The embassy is located at 2249 R Street NW, Washington DC 20008.
The new Kenyan passport was introduced by the Immigration department in August 2017. It features a chip that contains a person’s bio data. The old Kenyan passport will cease operation at the end of August 2019. When it was introduced, it could only be applied for in Kenya. This was really stressful for Kenyans in Diaspora because they have had to travel to Kenya to get the new passport.
