The Third Secretary Ms Alai and the Consular migration Attaché Mr Wamela discussed the role of the embassy in issueing various documents to Kenyans based in Germany and academics in Germany.
An issue arose on the delay of issueing visas in Nairobi and arising costs for document verification for relatives wishing to visit Germany, and the Ambassador confirmed that this was due to the increase in numbers of “doctored” documents being handed in at the German Embassy in Nairobi that the (German) embassy decided to carry out further investigations on all applications.
The next minute is scheduled for July, time and date will be announced later (Please check the latest events on the events page http://mkenyaujerumani.blogspot.com/p/events.html
