When the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) directed telecommunication companies to re-register SIM cards of their subscribers, Airtel went the digital way without hesitating.

Airtel allowed its subscribers to self-register online almost immediately after the CA’s directive, doing away with long queues at their shops.

Kenyans were then able to avoid penalties that CA had threatened against non-registered users by April 15 before it extended the deadline to October 15, 2022.

According to CA, non-compliant SIM users risk spending six months in jail, a Ksh300,000 fine, or both.

Nonetheless, here are the simple steps to fully register your SIM card online;

1. Open https://airtelkenya.com/lp/kyc/

2. Enter Airtel phone number.

3. Click validate and get a one-time password (OTP).

4. You will receive an SMS with a verification code.

5. Enter your ID number.

6. Scan and Upload your ID (back and front).

7. Submit.
