MESSAGE FROM THE HIGH COMMISSIONER

I wish to take this opportunity to introduce and welcome you to the new official website of the Kenya High Commission in Ottawa, Canada.

The aim of this website is to link the Mission to the public with a view to providing information on issues pertaining to consular services such as passports, visa applications and other related matters.

The website will in addition provide information on trade and investment opportunities available in Kenya. Tourism is also showcased so that visitors to Kenya can take full advantage of the flora and fauna and all that this beautiful country has to offer to those visiting whether for business or leisure.

Another important function of this website is to create a link between the Mission and the Kenya Diaspora. Kenyans living in Canada will be updated on political, social and economic developments in Kenya through the website on a regular basis. This, we hope, will enable for effective participation by all in the affairs of our motherland.

You are welcome to browse the website and provide feedback on ways we can improve it so as to serve you better. You can interact with us through the website, on social media or by contacting us directly using the telephone numbers listed on this site.

H.E. Mr. John L. Lanyasunya, MBS
HIGH COMMISSIONER

H.E. John Lanyasunya, led the Kenyan team to the 25th Annual Travel and Vacation Show 2019 which officially started on 30th March 2019 at 10.00am. The opening ceremony was officiated by Ms. Halina Player. Many dignitaries including Ambassadors and Heads of Mission, Travel Agencies, Exhibitors and the Media were in attendance. The Mission’s exhibition booth received a record high number of show goers who sought information on tourist attractions in Kenya. This gives more expectations for what is to come for the final day of the show on 31st March 2019. ... See MoreSee Less

Kenya needs to negotiate better about relationships with countries like Canada. I see South African oranges, Mexican avocados etc. In Canada and the quality is not near what Kenya grows. We have very good organic foods that can be exported to Canada. Canadians generally travel to nearer Caribbean lands for tourism so Kenya is not an immediate tourist destination. Let's collaborate on trade with Canada. And food is the best way.
