    The US embassy in Nairobi the new measures, which require sponsors to obtain and fill a consent form for the students under their sponsorship.


    In addition, the sponsors may be contacted to verify the consent and the authenticity of their financial documents.


    New regulations will also apply for those who choose to present bank statements in support of their applications as they will have to present original statements from commercial banks registered by the Central Bank.


    A statement from the embassy announced that the new measures were meant to enhance customer service and ensure continued integrity of the visa application process.

    Does the new rule only apply to Kenyans? Does anyone know?
    Is the US foreign office also planning the same s****y new procedure of sending all visa applications for processing in Nairobi like the British High Commission?

    Of all the foreign embassy offices I have visited (in Dar, at least) I think the British High Commission has the rudest staff. Hata Wajerumani hawako hivyo pamoja na preconception ambayo mtu unaweza kuwa nayo kuhusu Wajerumani.
