1 min read

The government through the State Department of Diaspora Affairs on Wednesday admitted that the citizenship fee hikes were done by error. 

Diaspora Affairs Permanent Secretary Roseline Njogu stated that a Gazette Notice published on November 7, was partly inaccurate.

In the Gazette notice, the Interior Ministry had raised the permanent residence fee for children of Kenyan citizens born outside Kenya to Ksh1 million and an issuance fee of Ksh200,000. 

“As per the Constitution, a child whose mother or father is a Kenyan Citizen is a citizen by birth. They do not need to apply for permanent residency,” Njogu stated

The PS explained that the children do not need to pay any permanent residency fees.
