How to obtain e-passports from Kenyan Embassy in Doha Qatar. The Kenyan Ambassador to Qatar the Late H E Paddy C Ahenda has said the new e-passport renewal facility is a welcome development as it will ease the process for many Kenyans. Speaking to NS NEWS, the Ambassador noted the passport renewal scheme would begin soon. The Ambassador noted that the an increase in the diplomatic engagements with the State of Qatar led the Kenyan Embassy in Doha recently to a larger and more spacious building to cater to the need of the growing diplomatic engagements and population of Kenyans in Qatar. Currently, over 35,000 Kenyans are living and working in Qatar. e-passports from Kenyan Embassy
“This is a significant step by the government because this has been a big problem for the community. Kenyans had to go back home to get their passport renewed, and it is an expensive process. It is a relief that the government brought the passport programme here,” Ahenda told NS News. Kenyan expatriates can now fill in an application at the eCitizen portal and then proceed to the Embassy for their biometrics to be taken. “We have our staff here already.
We know with the e-passport facility coming soon, we will have more people to attend. The team has been here for over three months. It’s just the IT team left to fix the necessary connections with Kenya to gene r a t e t h e numbers needed after taking the biometric. The team could have started earlier, but the disruption caused by COVID-19 led to a delay in their arrival, but soon the service will commence,” he added.

The Kenyan Immigration Department announced the Kenyan East African Community e-Passports (e-Passports) launch in 2017. The new e-passport contains a small embedded electronic microprocessor chip containing the passport holder’s biometric information, which ensures that the passport was not illegally replicated. The Ambassador asked all Kenyans to be vigilant as the launch date for the e-passport will be communicated to all Kenyans in Qatar through the Embassy’s official website and the media. e-passports from Kenyan Embassy in Doha Qatar

Small electric chip– The chip is vital because it stores and holds your personal details safe.
Digital photograph of the e-Passport holder– You need to take a digital photograph. It is important to note that minimal errors can surely lead to the rejection of the application. You have to take 3 full-face photos; don’t wear a hat while taking it. Don’t mount the photo and make sure that it is less than ‘2 inches by 1½’ or more than ‘2½ by 2 inches’. Also don’t gaze at the e-Passport photo. Ensure that the printing is done on a thin as well as normal photographic paper.
Biometric identifier – These are the characters that contain your identity.
Security features– The purpose of the security features is to ensure that there are no instances of unauthorized forgery.
