The hustle associated with acquiring a Kenyan passport will soon come to an end after the Ministry of Interior assured Kenyans of quicker services come July, 1, 2020.
Kenyans applying for passports, Identity Cards, birth and death certificates in Nairobi will be issued on the same day. Those applying from outside the capital city will however wait for a while longer.
Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi who was speaking in Mombasa during the recently held National Security and Development Forum assured Kenyans of improved citizen services.
The pilot program is part of a 10-point plan for 2020/ 2021 that will see Kenyans have access to better government services.
This comes as a relief to many Kenyans who will now not have to wait for long to book their travel due to the easily accessible passports.
The Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA) welcomed the move and urged travelers to secure their passports and book their travel through the trusted KATA agents.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services through their official twitter handle have provided a safer avenue for the public to report immigration fraud.
They urged the public not to post personal info on self or anyone else on their social media pages but instead to direct the complaints through https://www.uscis.gov/report-fraud
