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.

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.
