They told us this needs to be renewed in Nairobi, but you can renew it at some (but not all) other KRA offices around the country.

    We made a tenuous deal with Jamez, who runs one of those small shacks by the border with a printer and a computer. He processes paperwork for trucks and other cross border stuff. He gave us his number, took our information told us to WhatsApp him a couple days before our month was up. We did, and he renewed the FVP for us (which he can do at the border, he has access to the system somehow. A cargo agent maybe?) and we paid him via Mpesa. This meant we didn't have to brave the offices in Nairobi, no build our whole itinerary around being in Nairobi at the end of our initial 30 days.
    OK thanks, now clear.

    Webster is currently in Kenya and they said they breezed through Oloitokitok (the same border as Southerndreams used). Perhaps Webster will be able to confirm what paperwork they needed for Kenya?
    Sorry only seeing this now. We passed through Oloitokitok and were only asked for the carnet. No other fees were paid. I asked specifically about the Foreign Vehicle Permit having made a note of this after reading Caldrivers blog, and was told that it was only needed if you don’t have a Carnet. So who knows? We have been stopped twice on the road and asked for vehicle papers and officials accepted carnet without asking for anything else. But I guess we will only know for sure when we leave …..
