Kenya/Marrying A Kenyan Lady
First of all congrats on a great job. I have gone through some of the answers and that has encouraged me to ask you your advice.
This might be a little complicated. I am an Indian, now divorced, (almost five years back) and I did not update my passport and hence it still carries my spouse's name. In addition, I never bothered to collect the court decree.
Now I am in Kenya on a a visitor visa and met up with a lady who I am interested in marrying. I am also interested in continuing to stay back in Kenya and work here. Unfortunately, the lady is not employed.
Now if I want to marry her - what are the steps i need to take and documents. How do i get a dependent pass?
Thanks for the compliments and congratulations on your new found Kenyan love.
You will need the following documents.
>A full birth certificate.
> A valid passport.
> A valid Kenyan tourist permit obtained either from the Kenyan High Commission or on your arrival - which you already have as you are currently in Kenya.
>Since you are divorced you will need to present a Decree of Absolute having been stamped by the courts in your country.
> If the lady is under 21 years of age you will need written consent from her parents or guardians, in the form of an affidavit authorised by a notary or a solicitor.
You will need to be dependent on the lady. As it is, she is not employed. This will make it difficult to obtain a dependant pass.
That said, since you are in Kenya, you can come to our offices for a chat an explore other avenues. A small consultation fee shall apply of $57. If you would like to explore the matter further let me know.
