Upon receipt of the passport tracking number, an applicant can now be able to track the status of a passport and book for collection.
To do this, the Kenyan immigration department has partnered with the Postal Corporation of Kenya to avail an online passport booking and collection portal.
To track a passport using the tracking number via the portal, simply;
Go to the Passport booking and collection portal
Input your 10-digit tracking number
Tap on the ‘Track My Passport’ tab
Depending on the progress of the passport, you may encounter an error stating that the tracking number has not been found.
In this scenario, it implies that the passport is not yet ready for collection and you may need to wait a little longer before retrying the process.
On the other hand, if you are redirected to the booking page, it means that your passport is ready for collection thus you may proceed to enter the necessary KYC details such as full names, national ID number, email address, phone number, preferred collection point, payment amount and collection date.
Click on ‘Submit details’ to finalize the process.
Once successful, you will receive portal notification confirming the same as well as SMS detailing the payment and booking details.
If the confirmation SMS is not received, confirm that the payment details such as paybill and account number are accurate.
In the event of inaccuracy, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
