Kenya Diaspora Remittances Survey

The Central Bank of Kenya in collaboration with the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics and Ministry of Foreign Affairs is conducting an online survey on Kenyans living abroad. The survey will be conducted from 19th March to 17th May 2021.

The main objective of the survey is to collect valuable information to improve the quality of remittance statistics and guide policy on harnessing remittances for economic development, and address challenges facing remitters.

The survey will focus on the efficiency and cost of remittance channels, the difficulties encountered in remitting cash or non-cash transfers, the use of remittances received and the availability of information on investment opportunities in Kenya. Your responses to this survey will help address these issues and will be highly beneficial.

It is important to note that the survey respondents will remain anonymous and the data provided will be treated with utmost confidentiality, will not be used by third parties, and the resultant reports will only have aggregated data.

You are invited to participate in this brief online survey on remittances that will take about 15 minutes of your time to complete.
