Helb compliance certificate also known as a HELB clearance certificate, is one the required documents when applying for a job in kenya. The Helb compliance certificate is issued to beneficiaries who are repaying their loans and to non-beneficiaries who need HELB clearance.
Helb Clearance certificates used to be obtained at the HELB offices, but now the process has changed. All you need to do is have an account with HELB and make an application through the helb portal. If you are a non-beneficiary and never opened an account with helb, you also need to create an account to access helb services.
