The Directorate of Immigration Services has published a list of 6,021 passports ready for collection in Nairobi from October 16 – 19, 2023.
This release forms part of the ongoing Rapid Results Initiative (RRI), a reform program aimed at improving passport processing and collection efficiency.
Spearheaded by Interior CS Kithure Kindiki, the RRI has been in operation for four weeks, with the latest list featuring the names and collection dates of individuals whose passports are now available for pickup.
The initiative, which includes a 24-hour processing shift and prioritization of emergency applications, has significantly reduced bureaucratic hurdles in the passport collection process.
The government has also issued a strong warning that uncollected passports beyond the specified collection period will be disposed of, and the passport owners will be subject to penalties as per the law. To avoid any inconvenience, the public is encouraged to visit designated passport collection centers.
This initiative reflects the government’s commitment to enhancing transparency and curbing corruption within the Immigration Department.
The efforts to streamline passport processing and collection have been well-received by the public, who now experience a more efficient and hassle-free process.
Starting Monday, October 16, and ending on October 19, those listed are urged to promptly collect their passports to avoid any potential complications and penalties in accordance with the law.
