September, 2017: This is to notify the Kenyan Diaspora that the Department of Immigration Services has rolled out issuance of the e-Passport with effect from  1 September, 2017.

Holders of valid current passports will be allowed to use them for the next 2 years (i.e. 31 August 2019) after which they will be rendered invalid.

Applicants who wish to be issued an e-Passport will be required to make an application online on the e-citizen platform www.ecitizen.go.ke and present themselves to the Accredited Immigration Passport Processing Centers for profiling and biometrics capture.

Kenyan Driving License

Kenyan driving licenses may only be renewed and verified by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles, who is the issuing authority and can be contacted at the following address:

 

Registrar of Motor Vehicles

Department of Road Transport

PO Box 30440-00100 Nairobi,

Kenya Tel: +254-20-310900

Kenyans who are in the possession of a valid Kenyan driving licence may use it for a period of up to one year as long as the licence has been translated and authenticated by the Prefettura. After living in Italy for one year one MUST obtain an Italian driving licence to be able to drive. This involves taking both the theoretical and practical driving test in a Italian driving examination centre.

Requirements and Application for a Film Licence

Requirements and Application for a Film Licence
 
The Department of Film Services (DFS) of Kenya licenses all local and foreign crews undertaking filming in the country. In order to obtain a license, one copy of the script and a story synopsis must be sent to the Film Licensing officer. For documentaries the licenses are issued within minutes of application and for feature films and dramas within two days of application.

All applications for licenses to film in Kenya should be addressed to:

The Film Licensing Officer
Department of Film Services,
Ministry of Information and Communications,
P. O. Box 74934 - 00200, Nairobi, Kenya.

Local Filming Agents
 
1) Private production companies or individuals are requested to submit their applications through a local agent registered with the Ministry. This requirement is mandatory for all applications to make feature films or documentaries.
 
2) Government agencies may submit their applications through the local agents or through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Immigration
There are no restrictions in Kenya on how many expatriate crew members or artists can arrive per production. Advance notice is more of a courtesy than a requirement. Crew members and artists may arrive in Kenya on a visitor's pass prior to the film work permit being processed. 

Film License Form 
The Ministry would like to inform all foreign production companies that Kenya has a considerable number of experienced technical staff in filming techniques. We therefore recommend that producers should reserve as many places as possible for local crew.
