Kenya created an online marriage service at Sheria House, which will eliminate the need for human contact during the pandemic. The online marriage service was created as a response to social distancing measures, previously in May, there was an increase of clients registering in person. Couples who are now looking to get married can register through an eCitizen portal, which will handle marriage fees, and booking for a pre-wedding interview.
Offering marriage services through an online platform will ensure that people can maintain a safe distance, which will help to slow the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring that weddings can still proceed during the pandemic. After closure in may 2,551 marriages had to be suspended, and the new online service will prevent any suspension in the future.
