IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? In conjunction with the recent launch of its online application system, Kenya’s Department of Immigration Services has implemented an online payment system for immigration fees.
What does the change mean? Bank checks will no longer be accepted for payment of government immigration fees. In addition, applicants must pay new handling charges by the bank and system administrator.
Background: The new schedule of government fees is below. All figures are in Kenyan shillings. Information regarding government fees for student, researcher and intern passes is forthcoming.
200,000 KES (1 year)
400,000 KES (2 year)
BAL Analysis: Employers and individuals should factor the additional government fees into their budgets for foreign national employees.
