Importers will now have to acquire local marine insurance from Kenyan Insurance Companies on cargo imported to Kenya. This was a directive from Treasury Cabinet Secretary, Henry Rotich’s June 8, 2016 budget speech.
The directive is now being implemented since the beginning of this year. Please be aware and ensure this is fully complied with. If you need any assistance to get insurance arranged, Kenfreight can help.
Important to note this does not relate to transit cargo passing through Kenya.
