Can someone here tell me what I will need to secure Kenya work permit. I am a Nigerian planning to move to Kenya and start a business. I will also like to know if I can get the work permit here in Nigeria or when I get to Kenya.
Thanks Chris

Hello Chris,

Requirements for Kenya work permits vary depending on the nature of the work activity.Please follow the following links that explain the requirements:

http://www.immigration.go.ke/Information.html

http://www.embassy-of-kenya.de/Work-and-Residence-Permits.45.0.html

You can apply for the permit while still in Nigeria by writing to the immigration authorities .Please see the additional information under the link below and also find a downloadable application form:

However, since you mention that you intend to start a business upon settling in Kenya, I guess your first point of contact would be the Kenya Investment Authority. Please follow the following link to their website which provides useful information on investment opportunities and conditions in the country:

I hope you will find this information helpful.

Kind regards,
Benson
