Immigration Update

On 1st July 2019, the Department of Immigration Services issued a Public Notice requiring all Work Permit applications be accompanied with the Kenya Revenue Authority Tax Compliance Certificates (KRA TCC) of both the Individual Applicant and sponsoring Company in the case of a renewal (in the case of a first time application only the TCC of the sponsoring Company shall be required). Effectively, the Department of Immigration will not accept Work Permit applications without the appropriate KRA TCC.

A KRA TCC may only be issued to individuals and businesses that have complied with Kenyan statutory tax obligations.

In light of the above, Applicants for Work Permit are advised to take into consideration the additional time required to obtain a TCC and adjust their preparation periods accordingly.
