New Kenyan notes not accepted at US Embassy, alert for Visa applicants

New Kenyan notes are already in circulation

US Embassy in Nairobi

Kenyans wishing to make cash payments at the United States Nairobi Embassy will not be able to do so with the new currency, a statement from the consulate has cautioned.

The statement seen by Pulselive.co.ke explains that the embassy is yet to set up new procedures for handling the new notes.

"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," the statement reads in part.

Visa Application fees

The embassy has also been running a campaign cautioning Visa applicants against fraudsters who may demand money in exchange for Visa application forms.

The consulate only processes Visa applications submitted through their online platform, no applications are made through handwritten copies.

Payments can also be made through Postbank as well as through M-pesa.
