The Postal Corporation of Kenya also known as Posta Kenya and the Immigration Department today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see the former deliver passports directly to applicants.
The MoU was signed by Post Master General Dan Kagwe and Immigration boss Alexander Muteshi.
According to the immigration department, the initiative which is currently in its pilot stage will be fully operational from September 1, 2020.
The initiative is part of the government efforts to reduce congestion at the immigration department offices, save time for applicants as well as help in the fight against coronavirus.
“Through the initiative, passport applicants will not have to visit our offices to pick ready passports. This will significantly save time for applicants, reduce congestion in our offices, and help in the fight against the spread of COVID-19, ” the immigration department said on Thursday.
