No Booklets To Print New Passports As Kenyans Wait For The Document.

Kenyans wishing to be in possession of the new generation passports will have to wait much longer as the immigration office is unable to produce more. This has been occasioned by lack of adequate booklets to print the passports.

The immigration and Citizen Services Director-General Alexander Muteshi said they are in urgent need of Sh150 million to purchase booklets for printing passports.

Earlier, appearing before the Senate National Security and Defense committee, Mr Muteshi said the department had requested the National Treasury to allocate them Sh300 million to digitize all its processes and services, but only half of the amount has been disbursed so far.

It is quite challenging for Kenyans seeking to travel abroad considering that we are heading into festive season. The scenario will paralyze the travel industry to some extent while denying opportunity to some who may be seeking employment or health services abroad and need passport to travel.
