The Kenya Ports of Entry (POEs) comprises Airports, Borders and Sea ports. The process entailed examination into policies, systems, procedures, processes and practices of work at points of entry. The exercise was conducted due to various reports and complaints by members to EACC and through the media.

The reports revealed existence of weaknesses, opportunities and loopholes, which facilitate corrupt practices at POEs. The complaints ranged from: bribery, tax evasion, smuggling of contraband goods, clearance of illegal arms, and clearance of illegal aliens. The examination of systems was carried out at sampled POEs of two categories, airports and border points.

The airports involved are, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Mombasa International Airport, Eldoret International Airport ,Wilson Airport and Ukunda Airstrip; and the border points ; Namanga, Lunga Lunga and Malaba.

The review exposed weaknesses in the issuance of Entry VISAs and other immigration procedures, inefficiencies in verification and scanning of goods, inadequate security in the entrances to the airports, border points and within areas that need to be secured through the CCTVs, delays in most of the processes, inefficient complaint handling mechanisms, discretionary decision making processes in some areas among others. The report is aimed at streamlining the systems, policies, procedures and practices with a view to promoting efficiency and integrity in the delivery of services at the Ports of Entry.
