Getting your CRB clearance certificate has up until recently been done online for the most part. At the moment there are about three Credit Reference Bureaus (CRB) that have been providing these services.
While this is convenient for people that have online access it locks out people that either lack this access or that are otherwise not tech-savvy enough to complete the application on their own.
Fortunately, Huduma Centre have now introduced CRB services at some of their centres in partnership with one of the CRB companies called Metropol. These services include application of CRB clearance certificate and the listing report to confirm one’s credit score.
Huduma Centres that Support CRB Clearance
|CRB Services at Huduma Centres|
The following Huduma Centres are the only ones that currently support CRB services (as of November 2018):
- City Square
As you may have already noticed, all these Huduma Centres are within Nairobi. Therefore, for those outside Nairobi applying online is the only alternative until that time when CRB services are rolled out to Huduma centres in other regions.
To do that, you can check our post on applying for the CRB certificate online using one of the companies called TransUnion that allows for the application as well as checking one’s credit score using their Nipashe android app.
Requirements to Get CRB Clearance at a Huduma Centres
This service is not free and attracts some processing fees. The requirements are:
- Ksh.2200 for the certificate
- National ID
- Ksh.100 if you wish to check the listing report too
The Ksh.2200 fee is constant across all the CRBs. For those that choose to apply online will thus likewise have to part with a similar amount.
