Government postpones plans to outlaw old passports to 2020


The government has postponed plans to outlaw old passports citing poor response to calls for replacement with new ones with electronic features.

Deputy President William Ruto announced the new deadline of 2020 saying that the initial August 31, 2019 cut-off date was not feasible after a paltry 400,000 passport holders out of over 2.5 million Kenyans managed to renew the travel document.

“The deadline is soon approaching and only a small fraction has managed to upgrade their passports to the new e-Passport,” DP Ruto said.
