Document for use in Kenya first needs to be legalised by way of FCDO Apostille and then submitted to the Consulate of Kenya for further attestation.

Court documents, Statutory Declarations and Powers of Attorney for use in Kenya do not usually need to be legalised if they have been signed/authenticated by a UK notary public (s. 88 and 91 of the Kenyan Evidence Act 1963 (as amended)).


The consular fee is £5 per document plus a postal order fee from £5 depending on the amount of payment applicable.


The consular processing time is likely to be 5-10 working days.


A photocopy of the document is required upon submission to the Consulate.

The Consulate also requires an Application Letter detailing the need for legalisation, signed and dated by the applicant (the document holder) as well as a copy of the applicant’s passport (ID page only). 

Submission and return of documents are accepted via postal service only. 

Method of Payment: Debit card OR postal order (for postal applications)

Opening hours: 9:30 am to 12:00 noon Monday to Friday
