Kenyans seeking to replace their national identity cards will now have to pay Ksh.100 after the government reintroduced the fee which had been scrapped.

Director of National Registration Reuben Kimotho on Tuesday directed all Sub-county Registration Officers to ensure the amount is charged for processing a duplicate ID card.

The amount will not be charged on persons applying for an ID card for the first time.

“Please note that the Ksh.100 fee will not be applicable to young persons who are attaining the 18 years. As the manager in charge of registration of persons in the Sub County, you must exercise accountability, you will personally be held responsible for any mishandling or misappropriation of the revenue,” read the notice.

Charging of the amount takes effect from Thursday, March 15, 2018.

When one is seeking to replace their ID card, they are required to submit a police abstract from any police station and a copy of the lost card or the ID number.
