Welcome message

Dear Reader,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Embassy of the Republic of Kenya in Rome.

The website is intended to give you quick information on the key sectors of the Kenyan economy as well as to provide relevant links to various Kenyan institutions as you plan to do business in Kenya. We trust that you will find the site a useful entry point to facilitate you to visit, invest or do business with us.

The Kenya Embassy in Rome was opened in 1974 as a Permanent Representation to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). In 1987, it was upgraded to a bilateral Diplomatic Mission. The Mission is both a bilateral and multilateral station with accreditations to Poland, Greece, Cyprus and Malta on one hand, and to the United Nations Rome-Based Agencies (UN-RBAs) on the other. The UN-RBAs include; the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The Mission is also accredited to international organizations namely; the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM).

Kenya enjoys warm and cordial relations with the countries of accreditation and maintains close and mutually beneficial collaboration with the United Nations system in Rome. Therefore, one of the Mission’s mandates is to maintain and strengthen bilateral and multilateral ties.

The online Consular services are at your disposal for quick intervention. Information on the services we offer to Kenyans and other nationals can also be found here. To augment these services, Kenya has Honorary Consulates in Athens, Milan and Nicosia.

Finally, we look forward to your feedback to enable us serve you better.

Thank you.
