To be the single national custodian of persons’ identification data in Kenya


To conduct a national biometric registration  for all Kenyan citizens and foreign Nationals within the country for enhanced service delivery.


Registration of persons has in the past been uncoordinated. This has led to different institutions capturing different data parameters of the same individual with unnecessary duplication amounting to inefficiency in utilization of public resources.

Furthermore, registration of persons has been paper-based which is expensive and time consuming.

There is also lack of a single identity document for persons accompanied by limited public access to national identification data.
