Only one week left to register for Huduma Namba 

The Huduma Number registration process is open until the middle of May and requires every local and foreign national in Kenya to register.

Who will be affected?

This will affect local and foreign nationals in Kenya.

Background

The Government initiated the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) program through Executive Order No. 1 (2018). The purpose of this initiative is to create and manage a central master population database which will be the ‘single source of truth’ on a person’s identity. The database will contain information of all Kenyan citizens and foreign nationals residing in Kenya and will serve as a reference point for ease of service delivery to the people of Kenya (Huduma Namba kwa Huduma Bora).

The exercise is being done in all administrative offices such as County Commissioner’s and their deputies, chiefs, sub-chiefs offices countrywide (There’s also a point of registration at Nyayo House on Posta street-CBD).

Impact

This will have very little impact on Immigration to Kenya as the intention of this process is to improve service delivery in Kenya as a whole.

How Santa Fe can assist?
