How to Register a birth in Kenya by Kenyans247(m): Tue Feb 2020 02:38pm
For a child born in hospital:
The parent(s) or designated guardian should obtain a birth notification card.
The notification card should be presented to the district registrar of births and deaths, and this should be accompanied by the other information required. They should then proceed to fill form B1.
For a child born at home, birth registration should be sought from the local Sub-Chiefs Office, who assists with the necessary documentation.
Individuals seeking late registration of birth should provide as many identity documents as they have to show that indeed they are Kenyan Citizens. This information should be given to the district registrar of births and deaths.

However, individuals who failed to obtain the certificate at birth can still get it by following a special procedure.

Information which might help
Kenyans in born in foreign countries should check with their Kenyan embassies in their respective countries if they want to apply for a late birth registration

Other uses of the Document/Certificate
