Passport applications must be done in person at the Embassy. However, parents may apply on behalf of their children aged below 16.

Kenyan passports

Kenyan citizens wishing to apply for a passport, travel document or emergency certificate can do so at the nearest Kenyan Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. From 1 January 2007, new passports are issued with a validity of 10 years, the renewal fee being included in the initial payment. Kenyans in the diaspora who travel frequently are advised to apply for 48-page or 64-page passports.

In the framework of the fight against child trafficking, the International Civil Aviation Authority Organization (ICAO) recommends that all travellers carry their own passport. As a result, the Kenyan authorities no longer endorse minor children in their parents' passports, but require that children be issued with their own passport.
