Special pass in Kenya-immigration services in Kenya

A “Special Pass” in Kenya refers to a visa or permit that allows a non-citizen to temporarily reside or work in the country for a specific purpose, such as for business, study, or research. The requirements for obtaining a Special Pass can vary depending on the stay’s purpose and the Kenyan government’s specific regulations.

The process of obtaining a Special Pass in Kenya usually involves the following steps:

  1. Determine eligibility: Check if you meet the criteria for obtaining a Special Pass, such as the purpose of your stay in Kenya (business, study, research, etc.) and if you have the required qualifications and documents.
  2. Prepare required documents: This may include a passport or other government-issued identification, proof of financial support, proof of purpose of stay (e.g. letter of invitation from a Kenyan company), and any other relevant documentation as required by the Kenyan government.
  3. Submit the application: You may need to submit the application in person or through an authorized representative and pay the relevant fees.
  4. Wait for processing: The processing time for a Special Pass can vary, so it’s important to check the status of your application regularly and to prepare for any additional requirements that may arise.
  5. Obtain the pass: If approved, you will receive the Special Pass, which typically has a set validity period. You may need to renew the pass before it expires if you wish to continue staying in Kenya.

It’s important to note that these are general steps and that the specific requirements for obtaining a Special Pass in Kenya can vary. You can contact us at info@swkadvocates.com to apply for a special pass.
