Kenyan Currency Acceptance for Consular Appointments at U.S. Embassy Nairobi

The Government of Kenya has introduced new currency with plans for withdrawing all old currency from circulation by October 1, 2019.  The Embassy of the United States is currently developing procedures to accept the new Kenyan shillings.  Until these procedures are in place, consular applicants will only be able to pay for services using the previous Kenyan shillings.  You may also continue to pay by credit card.  We appreciate your understanding as we work closely with the Government of Kenya to put the necessary processes in place as soon as possible.
