The key requirements while applying for the E-government services via IremboGov: 

  • Adults should have a  national ID number

  • Minors should have a child application number or National identity number (Acquired from the sector of residence/birth or from the National Identification Agency)

  • Supporting documents where required

  • Applicants should have an email address that will receive the application notifications.

We understand most Rwandans living abroad don’t have an IremboGov account and are not able to create it because of not owning a local phone number linked to the national ID. 

Below are the Support process flow, Payment modes, Post-payment process, Application/Payment status, and the escalation Prerequisites.

  1. Support process flow.

The response time to your email is 1 working day. 

  1. Payment modes.

After submitting the application, the applicant is sent a Bill ID for payment. Applicants choose the mode of payment: offline (MTN, Airtel, or BK) or online (Visa or MasterCard). For more information about payment modes, click here.

  1. Post-payment process.

After paying successfully via IremboGov, the applicant receives a feedback notification from the institution informing them when the service will be available. For e-certificate services, you receive the certificate in your email and for services that require you to present the physical documents, the applicant should visit the nearest embassy.

  1. How to track the application or Payment Status?

After paying for the service, you want to check the payment status or application status without logging into the IremboGov account.

Follow these simple steps to check the Application/Payment Status :

Click on the print icon “Print Certificate.” 

  • When the application has submitted status it means that the application is not yet approved by the institution.

  • When the billing number has payment pending status it means that it is not yet paid for.
