Belgium in Kenya

Embassy

Allow me to warmly welcome you to the website of the Belgian Embassy in Nairobi. Are you a Belgian who has recently moved to Kenya and would like to register with the Consulate in Nairobi? Did you lose your passport while you were travelling through Kenya as a tourist? Do you need to request a visa in order to travel to Belgium? Then you’ve come to the right address for our consular services. Please note that you may also call on our honorary consuls in Mombasa, Victoria, Tananarive and Asmara.

Our Embassy is in charge of diplomatic relations with Kenya, Eritrea, Somalia, the Seychelles, the Comoros and Madagascar. We also act as a permanent Mission to the United Nations in Nairobi as well as to UNEP and Habitat. We wish to build on this website to communicate better with all stakeholders in relations with Kenya and all other countries where we represent Belgium. In Kenya for example we provide support to reform of education, the modernization of the energy sector or to better public healthcare. In Somalia, we contribute to humanitarian aid and we are actively involved in the struggle against piracy. Within UNEP, of which we are the fifth donor, we encourage the transition towards a low-carbon society and an inclusive green economy globally, and promote sustainable development, including in the partner countries of our development cooperation worldwide. In all of the East-African countries where we represent Belgium, we encourage more intense commercial and economic relations.

On this website you can find local news, including our regular electronic newsletter. If you have suggestions for our services to be improved, please send me a message on Nairobi@diplobel.fed.be.

Kind regards and looking forward to meet you soon,

Roxane de Bilderling  
Ambassador
