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

PEI cannot beat the potato industry in Meru. They should actually partner with us to supply during winter, give us affordable potato drying plants... We can supply products directly .. Oh this is getting better... Devolved government power.
