The Kenyan embassy in Nairobi in Nairobi has promised to accelerate visa application process and greatly reduce the long wait endured by Kenyans in an attempt to acquire the travel documents.

The new US Ambassador to Kenya, Margaret Whitman, admitted that the unnecessary backlog situation is unacceptable, and promised to do everything possible to expedite the application process.

“I am aware of the very long visa wait times that Kenyans are experiencing to get the document to the US. The situation is unacceptable and we need to fix it,” said Ms Whitman.

Further, the site will also clearly show the type of fees that are non-refundable to allow Kenyans to make informed decisions before submitting their application and paying the associated fees.
