Epassport application submission and biometrics

Appointments are only bookable online through the link provided below. We do not issue appointments by phone call or email.

The Embassy in Berlin offers passport biometrics services to all Kenyans living in countries where epassport services are not offered by their local Kenyan Embassy.

Please read through this information page carefully before booking the appointment.

Appointments appear on the calendar as green/brown dots with the number 1. Once all appointment slots are fully booked, the booking calender will remain blank and the message 'No event found for the given period!' will appear if you click on any date, until new appointment dates are availed.


1. Confirmation of your booking

  • Once you have booked your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email immediately. 

  • For children born in Europe, you have to present a international birth certificate issued and certified in the country of birth of the child, bearing 3 languages, including English. Click here to see a sample. Ensure that you have this document at the time of biometrics. 

2. What can you do if all the appointment slots are fully booked?

Once all appointment slots are booked, you have to wait until slots for the next month are made available. 

3. Note the following before you book:

  • Do not attempt to make a booking for ePassport biometrics unless you have finished the application process on ecitizen! You MUST first apply for the epassport on www.ecitizen.go.ke

  • Ensure that you enter your eCitizen EPP1/CPP1 application reference as follows EPP1-XXXXXX (enter the number) or CPP1-XXXXXX (enter the number) on the required field when booking the appointment. Appointments booked without entering this important reference will be cancelled.

  • Ensure that you enter the name of the applicant whose biometrics will be captured on the booking portal and not of the person booking.

  • Each applicant must be booked for an appointment slot separately.

  • You must have an original Kenyan ID card and birth certificate among other requirements to be able to apply for the ePassport in Berlin. Applicants without these originals will not be processed.

A confirmation email will be sent to your email automatically upon a successfull booking. If you do not receive one, you might have entered your email incorrectly or check your spam folder. Ensure that you fill in the required field CORRECTLY.
