Did you know you can easily retrieve your lost KRA pin with your identification card? Yes, it’s possible. The feeling of losing the pin can be very frustrating, especially when you want to carry out a particular transaction that requires it.

There are three ways to check your KRA pin using your ID. They are:

  1. Visit the nearest KRA office or Huduma Centre with your original ID and request for the retrieval of your KRA pin. They will issue you with a copy of the KRA certificate.
  2. Scan a colored copy of your original ID and send it to the official social media page of KRA and request for the pin. Which social media, you may ask? Use twitter to reach the KRA media team. They usually reply within an hour. And in any case you are not into social media, send them the scanned ID to their email address at
  3. You can also use the email you used during iTax registration. Log into the KRA portal and download the pin certificate.

Retrieving your KRA pin through social media has been proven to the most effective method while sending an email is the least method as KRA rarely responds to emails.
