Hello,

You do not require a Certificate of Impediment from the UK as Kenya is. Commonwealth country and the UK does not issue such certificates for commonwealth countries.

You will need your passport in Kenya to prove your identity.
You will be asked to swear an affidavit in Kenya when giving Notice there of your intended marriage avering that you are not married at the time of giving Notice and that there is no impediment as to why you should not get married.

This affidavit will be given to you in Kenya when giving Notice in the prescribed form.

All the best

i was told to get an affidavit here

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
You do not need an affidavit from here, it is all done in Kenya. Your passport will be required as you are not a Kenyan national.
