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


Kenya High Commission Ottawa 2018 Newsletter

It was a busy year for our team. This Newsletter edition covers the main activities undertaken by the Mission in the first quarter of 2018.


The High Commissioner, H.E John L. Lanyasunya represented Kenya during the private screening of the new Lion King film, which took place in Toronto, Canada on 29th July, 2019. The movie serves as a useful platform for promoting Kenyan tourist locations, considering that most of the scenes were shot in Kenya. The event was attended by about 200 travel operators who were addressed by the High Commissioner and urged to sell Kenya as a preferred tourist destination. The occasion was held in partnership between Kenya Tourism Board and Goway Travel. ... See MoreSee Less

For you to pay the fees for the e passport you need an e citizen log on and the site only accepts kenyan phone numbers. Not a reasonable expectation for someone in diaspora

Going to Washington to get an e-passport doesn’t make any sense. So one has to travel to Washington to get a new passport or renew as the requirement is to get digital photos. So if the USA does not give you visa or allow you entry how will someone go and get it done? Now that person is at the mercy of the US government. This option was not well thought I guess. How about accepting digital photos uploaded with your application and to mail them in, you need to make life easy and need to change with times. It costs money to travel, it’s not free.
