Message From High Commissioner

The High Commissioner of The Republic of Kenya

Amb. Willy Kipkorir Bett

It is my pleasure and privilege to introduce and welcome you to this website of the High Commission of the Republic of Kenya, New Delhi.The High Commission of the Republic of Kenya, New Delhi was established in the year 1969 to promote and enhance bilateral relationship between Kenya and India through effective diplomatic engagement. Over the years, Kenya and India have enjoyed friendly and historic relations which continue to grow gradually transforming into a mutually beneficial partnership.

The Kenya High Commission, New Delhi is also accredited to Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Singapore. Our mandate therefore, is to implement Kenya’s foreign policy focussing on steering forward the already vibrant relations between Kenya and India, as well as countries of accreditation.

Kenya’s geo-political location at the confluence of the Great Lakes, Horn of Africa and the Indian Ocean contiguity, strategically makes it a gateway to Africa’s major trading blocs such as the East African Community (EAC) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).

Nairobi, the only UN headquarters in the Global South hosts United Nations Offices and numerous international and inter-governmental organisations making it a regional hub for economic and multilateral diplomacy. In terms of tourism, Nairobi is the world’s only wildlife capital – a short drive out of Nairobi’s central business district is the Nairobi National Park. Wide open grass plains and backdrop of the city scrapers, scattered acacia bush play host to a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife.

The website has several links to enable easy access to areas of interest such as consular services, trade and investment opportunities and tourism. I believe that the information provided on this website will enable you learn more about the services offered by the Mission to both Kenyans and foreign nationals interested in Kenya.

Once again I welcome you to the Mission’s website and look forward to a fruitful working relationship.

ASANTE AND GOD BLESS YOU.

Amb. Willy K. Bett, EGH
