HI, I have a job offer from one of the company based in Kenya and currently going through the procedure of work permit. Can anyone guide on the timeline of getting the work permit processed and is there a chance of application getting rejected.

Hi Latish,

Congrats on your job offer in Kenya. 

The are differing reports on how long it takes to process a work visa for Kenya. The immigration authorities says it should take between 2-15 days depending on how busy the Kenyan embassy is in your country. 

In many cases, the employer will assist you in submitting your application for a work permit for Kenya. This will reduce some of your stress, so speak to them.

This page on Visas for Kenya will give you some information on the type of ducments you'll need to submit with your application.

Best of Luck
