This e-service allows Rwandans to apply for a death record certificate for a person who is registered as deceased in the National Identification Agency (NIDA) system. If the death is already registered in the Civil Registration System, the information about the death is automatically fetched, and the applicant does not fill out any other details.
Applicants receive their death records as soon as they pay. No executive secretary (ES) action is needed. The ES action is only needed when the user is not registered in the Civil Registration System. When the applicant enters their email while applying for this service, the certificate is sent to their email addresses without downloading it on the IremboGov platform.
The processing time is 1 working day; the service costs Rwf 1,500
