Obtaining Police Certificate
To obtain a Certificate of Good Conduct, applicants residing in other countries must send a complete set of rolled and plain fingerprints together with a written request to the Criminal Investigations Department, P.O. Box 30036, Nairobi. Fingerprints should be taken by a local police official and bear an official stamp, or be taken before an attorney and certified. The official should also verify the identity of the individual being fingerprinted by noting the details of the identification document. Fee is 1,000 Kenyan Shillings per application plus return postage, with results available in 4-6 weeks. The fee may also be paid at Kenyan Embassies or Consulates abroad. Applicants in Kenya should apply in person at CID Headquarters in Nairobi. Appropriately registered aliens or refugees that have registered with the Kenyan Commission of Refugees and UNHCR may be issued Certificates of Good Conduct. Undocumented aliens in Kenya are not eligible for a Police Certificate.

Medical Exam Details
She should arrange to have her medical as early as possible, at latest 1 week before her consulate interview. She should bring her appointment letter, Form DS-2053, Passport, 2x Visa Photos, and her vaccination records. It is recommended she brings her vaccinations up to date while at the clinic. This is required later when she applies for her Green card in the USA, so by doing it now she will save herself time and expense later.

Depending on the clinic they give her a sealed envelope with her test results, or forward the results directly to the consulate. Should she receive the envelope, she must NOT break the seal. She must bring the unopened envelope with her to the embassy interview.

Cost of Medical Exam
The exam is around $105 but the cost for vaccinations depends on how many he/she needs. $245 is the estimated cost for all, but most pay around $100-$150. It’s recommended that you get as many vaccinations before-hand since the Nairobi doctors can be expensive. Also, a chest x-ray is required.
