Read Time:4 Minute, 29 Second

This is a complete guide on how to create an eCitizen Account. You create an eCitizen account to access various government services.

With an eCitizen Account, you will be able to apply for Government to Citizen (G2C) services and pay for those services via mobile money, Debit Cards, and eCitizen agents.

This is one of the ways Kenyan citizens and foreigners can access government services with ease and within no time. There are various services that you can access from the portal.

Why Use eCitizen Services?

  • You will create a single sign-in account – One account is all you need, a single username and password that gives you access to most services offered by the government.
  • It is convenient – this is because you will pay using mobile money, Debit Cards, and online banking from local banks.
  • Notifications – you will get email and SMS notifications every time your application has progressed to another stage or has been fully processed.
  • Provided services – most applications are online-based whereby you fill an online application form. For some applications, once your document has been prepared, you will receive it in PDF format from wherever you are ready for printing.
  • Most government offices require online applications.

Which Account Should I Create?

Before you create your eCitizen account, you should know the account type to create. The four accounts available are:

  • Kenyan Citizen – This account is for Kenyan citizens only. You will need your National ID number and your first name to register.
  • Foreign Residents – This account is for foreigners residing in Kenya. You will need your alien identification number and your first name to register.
  • eVisa Visitors – This account is for nationals who require a visa to enter the Republic of Kenya. You will require your passport number.
  • Business – This account is for businesses registered in Kenya. You will need your business registration number.
