I have received numerous queries about this the PR process. Today I had a chat with the head of PR section at Kenya Immigration and can now confirm the following:
- The process is on but the government is not in a hurry because they have to do due diligence before issuing PR.
- In order to apply for PR, it is assumed that such a person MUST have resided in Kenya temporary…it is then that you can apply for PR. This therefore means that either one is on a dependent pass or a work permit before applying for a PR.
- There are many brokers (lone wolfs mostly) in town who will promise you that they can get your PR in a record time! be careful with such people because they are most likely going to mess your file with fake documents…this might cause you real trouble with the law….just follow the proper channels or look for credible firms to help with the process. It might be a bit slow and costly but worth every penny.
