Please note that all non-Kenya Citizens must be in possession of Entry/Work Permits issued by the Principal Immigration Office, before they can take up employment in Kenya, whether paid or unpaid. Applications for issue of Entry/Work permits are not processed at this Mission. They should be addressed to:
Director of Immigration Services
Department of Immigration
PO Box 30191
Applications may be considered when submitted by prospective employers on behalf of their prospective employees. These may not normally be approved unless the prospective employer(s) can show evidence that they have been unable to fill the Particular Post(s) due to lack of suitably qualified personnel in the Kenya Labour Market.
Those seeking to work in Kenya must therefore ensure that their prospective employers have secured appropriate Entry/Work Permits before they proceed to Kenya. For more details please visit http://www.immigration.go.ke
