Coming Soon: Online Fee Payment for Adult Passport Renewals


Currently, all U.S. passport applicants in Kenya must arrange for in-person payment of their passport renewal fee at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi. We understand that this situation is inconvenient for U.S. citizens residing outside Nairobi and have been working on a solution.


The Department of State is pleased to announce that U.S. Embassy Nairobi will soon begin supporting online payment for adult passport renewal fees. Qualified applicants will no longer need to make an interview appointment at the U.S. Embassy. The program is expected to begin in the next few weeks. We will send out another announcement when this online payment becomes available, along with specific instructions to help you confirm your eligibility to use this payment option.
