KENYA – Tax Certificate Now Required for Work Permit Renewals
Effective 1 July 2019, the Department of Immigration Services (DIS) has issued a directive requiring all work permit renewal applications to include individual and company Tax Compliance Certificates (TCCs).
Although not expressly stated in the DIS Directive, it is expected that company TCCs will also be required for initial work and special pass applications.
- Employers and employees should plan for increased lead time to allow them to obtain a TCC.
- Employers who may be affected are encouraged to contact a Newland Chase immigration specialist for case-specific advice.
