International Non-Governmental Organization can Register as a PBO in Kenya

An international NGO can register as a PBO under the PBO Act by submitting an application form with proof that it is a legal entity in another country and by providing its address in Kenya and a written statement from a representative of its headquarters, stating the purposes of the NGO, a general description of the activities it is planning to carry out in Kenya and the name and contact details of its authorized agent in Kenya.

However, the international organization must have at least one-third of its directors as Kenyan citizens resident in Kenya and having an office in Kenya.

The Authority may also exempt an organization registered outside the country from registration, particularly where the international organization does not intend to engage in direct implementation of any activity, program, or fundraising activities in Kenya.
