EXTENSION OF TEMPORALY CLOSURE OF THE KENYA EMBASSY BANGKOK 1. Thailand’s national Covid-19 task force, on 09th July 2021 ordered schools in the Bangkok metropolitan area to move classes online and for government employees in non-essential services to work from home, while appealing to the private sector to do the same. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand, via Note 0404/C1141 urged all Diplomatic Missions and International Organizations to strictly follow the government’s directives and work from home with effect from 12th July, 2021 for a period of 14 days in conformity with the government announcement. 2. The move to tighten restrictions follows a relentless surge in infections and hospitalizations that have stretched the nation’s health care system, especially in the virus epicenter, Bangkok. Thailand has seen a more than 10-fold surge in infections since early April and reported 9,539 new cases on Sunday 11th July, 2021 and 86 new fatalities. 3. In view of the above the Embassy will remain closed and the staff will work from home for the stipulated period of time in adherence to the government directive. Please note the official hotline number for use during the lockdown period is: +66990745752 Email: Kenyaembassybangkok@yahoo.com

  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.
