before the passing of the Constitution 2010 Kenyan citizens were not allowed to have dual citizenship. However after 2010 one can become a dual citizen either by birth  or registration(chapter 3 of the Kenyan Constitution 2010)
one does not also loose their citizenship status through marriage or its dissolution thereof(13(3))
To apply for Dual citizenship visit the Kenyan Embassy in your state and download the available forms requirement in the website.

Hello mwaniki fraciah ! :cheers:

Welcome to

Thank you for these informations!

Looking forward to read you more on the forum, do not hesitate to create a new thread to introduce yourself to the online community.

Also, if you are Kenyan born and have lost your citizenship for whatever reason, you can apply to regain it.

If you, as a Kenyan, gain the citizenship of another country, then you are supposed to make a declaration of this within 3 months of acquiring the second citizenship.  It is an offence not to do this and it potentially carries a fine of something like 5 million shillings and/or jail!

As posted above, applications can be made, in Kenya (at Immigration), or at the High Commission/Embassy.

It should be noted that the above would only be applicable if one had gained citizenship of another country that permitted dual citizenship.
