People seeking to apply for a new E-passport or renew one will still be able to do that after the August 30 deadline.
The immigration department has clarified that the application process will continue even after the deadline.
The people that shall need to travel after August will, however, have to have acquired the new passports since the old passports will become obsolete then.
This has brought a huge relief to Kenyans who have been swarming Nyayo House to apply for a passport.
People throng in at Nyayo House as early as 3am and wait until 8:00 am when the service is opened to the public.
