Hi Farooq,

There are a couple of things that you will need to consider;

Do you have a Kenyan Passport of Identity Card?

Is your girlfriend a Kenyan national?

Have you or your girlfriend ever been married before?

Are you looking to be married in a church, other religious marriage or at the Civil Registry?

Let me know the answer to this via email - and I will be in a position to advice you further.
