Kenyans to Travel to US With Old Passport After U-Turn

The US Embassy in Nairobi has reversed its earlier decision to ban visa applications by Kenyans without digital passport.
In a tweet, the embassy said that they will place a US visa in a non-digital passport until further notice and that holders of current US visas do not need to take any action.
“Visa applicants may apply for a US visa with a non-digital Kenyan passport. We will place a US visa in a non-digital passport until further notice. Holders of current US visas do not need to take any action,” the embassy wrote in a tweet.
The embassy had earlier said it will no longer issue visas to Kenyans who don’t have the new e-passports.
“All travellers to the United States from Kenya must have a passport valid for at least six months from date of entry. Therefore, US Embassy Nairobi can no longer place US visas in the previously issued non-digital passport expiring August 31, 2019,” read previous Facebook posts.
