  Our Mission in Bangkok

Kenya-Thai diplomatic relations started when the Government
of Thailand opened the Royal Thai Embassy in Nairobi in 1967.
A Kenyan Consulate was opened in Bangkok in 1992 and,in October
2006,the Embassy of the Republic of Kenya was opened in Thailand.
Since then, Kenya and Thailand have deepened economic, commercial,
cultural and trade co-operation.
The two countries have taken advantage of the cordial relations
to enhance co-operation in various fields. Kenya is the largest
economy in East Africa and has a wide range of lucrative opportunities
for investment in agriculture,tourism, infrastructure and industry
among others.It is also a source market for many high quality products,
especially in the agricultural sector.The Embassy is happy to provide
information on these opportunities and products.
The Embassy also issues visas to persons visiting Kenya and provides
consular services to Kenyans living in Thailand as well as the other
countries that the Embassy serves namely, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and
Vietnam.Our mission is to advance the interests of Kenya through
innovative diplomacy in the countries of accreditation.
