Extension for the Deadline for Migration to Second Generation E-Passport
The Government of Kenya has extended the deadline for the replacement of the old passports with the new generation e-passport by a further 10 months until 31st December 2021.
The Government has been in the process of phasing out the old-generation passport, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic that scaled down the operations of immigration services in an effort to mitigate the spread of the Virus; In that regards it has considered to extend the Deadline so as to make up for the disruption that has been caused by the pandemic.
It is worth noting that all factors remaining constant this is expected to be the last deadline and starting the 1st January 2022 the old dark blue passport will be null and void and no Kenyans will be able to travel internationally without a valid East African Community biometric –e passport which is sky blue in colour.

For Children under the age of 18 years , either of the parent should submit the application on their behalf using their Ecitizen Account.
