According to a notice on the Kenya Immigration Website https://fns.immigration.go.ke/ all foreign nationals services will be applied for online starting March 1st 2016
This should be a great thing and we hope that as we get used to the system, a few teething problems will be addressed. One of the immediate challenge that may arise is the inability of companies to apply for say permits or passes for their employees on a corporate account. I would Imagine that the system should eventually be able to accommodate corporate account where company XYZ for instance is able to make applications on their account for all their employees using a designated person’s account an email which may be the same for say 10 applications made by the same company.
I must say it is still too early to appraise the system objectively but as we go along, we should be able to help in analysing it and giving areas where this system needs improvement. I am excited and happy that the Department of Immigration is making these good steps towards the automation of services and wish them the very best.
