Emergency Travel Document

Emergency Travel Document

An “Emergency Certificate” is a one-way travel document which is issued to Kenyan nationals who do not have a valid passport at the time when they wish to travel to Kenya. This document is merely intended to facilitate travel to Kenya, and does not allow for a return journey. The person to whom it was issued must, therefore, obtain a valid Kenyan passport during their stay in Kenya, so as to ensure that they can actually leave Kenya again.

NOTE: Please note that Emergency Travel Document is valid for use for 1 month from the date of issue.
