STEPS ON APPLYING FOR ALCOHOLIC DRINK LICENSE
The electronic Alcoholic Drink License is a system-generated license that is issued through the Mombasa e-services platform. All businesses dealing with alcoholic drinks can apply and submit their requests online for review, inspection, and approval by the Mombasa County liquor licensing team. This is a separate service from the SBP, however, in order to apply for a Liquor license, a business must have a valid SBP permit generated within the system.
There are several payment options provided for the clients through an electronic payment platform (such as M-PESA, RTGS, Local Bank Transfer, Cash Deposits at KCB and others). The County Government of Mombasa receives the payment in real-time and a permit is generated immediately.
Upon successful payment, the application is submitted to the Liquor Board for final approval and issuance of permit. Once, approved, the applicants are able to conveniently download their permits online and use for operations of their businesses.
