Belgium in Kenya


Beware of scams

A number of citizens informed us over the last few days that they had been the victims of attempted scams. They were contacted by con-men who tried to extort money from them over the phone by pretending to be working for our  Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In order to make their story more credible, they had managed to have our central telephone number in Brussels appear (02/501.81.11) on the telephone screen of their victims.

We call expressly everyone not to take any kind of action following such calls. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs never takes contact by phone alone to clear financial matters with the public, whatever the issue.

If you are the victim of a fraud, please inform us through our complaint form (https://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/Contact/complaints) or refer it directly to the federal contact point (https://meldpunt.belgie.be/meldpunt/en/welcome).

Welcome to the website of the Belgian Embassy in Nairobi.

Our Embassy is in charge of diplomatic relations not only with Kenya but also with Somalia, Eritrea, Madagascar, the Seychelles and the Comoros and acts as a Permanent Mission to the United Nations in Nairobi as well as to UNEP and Habitat.

Are you Belgian and have you moved recently to Kenya? Have you lost your Belgian passport? Do you need to request a visa in order to travel to Belgium? Our consular services are here to assist you. Please note that you may also call on our honorary consuls in Mombasa, Victoria, Tananarive and Asmara.

On this website you can find information on our consular services and local news, including our regular electronic newsletter.

If you have suggestions for our services to be improved, please send me a message to Nairobi@diplobel.fed.be.

With my best regards,

Nicolas Nihon
