Welcome Message

In my capacity as Ambassador of Italy in Kenya, with jurisdiction also over the Seychelles, as well as Permanent Representative of Italy to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Habitat (UN-Habitat), I wish to welcome all users of the website of the Italian Embassy in Nairobi.

Together with all the staff of the Embassy and those of other offices of Italian institutions operating here, including our network of Honorary Consuls, we intend to pursue as best we can our mission of continuing to strengthen the bonds of friendship and collaboration in all fields between Italy and Kenya and between Italy and the Seychelles. It is what we have sought to do tangibly during these first months of my term of office in different sectors (political, economic and cultural) through various initiatives that we intend to carry on.

I wish to convey particular regards to all compatriots, women and men, who live and operate in various fields in Kenya - including our officers at the UN agencies in Nairobi -and also in the Seychelles and who, through their hard work, as I have already been able ascertain having met many of them personally, keep Italy’s name high and make us proud to represent them here.

We will be fully committed to provide services that are more and more respondent to your various needs and those of our Kenyan friends. In Kenya, as well as in the Seychelles, it is also possible, for example, to access the online services of the new portal “Fast It – Farnesina Servizi Telematici per gli Italiani all’estero” (, which aims at making our consular services abroad faster and more direct.

Nevertheless, in order to achieve this objective, your proposals and observations will be very useful. Therefore please do not hesitate to submit them through our contacts (;

In the spirit of open and fruitful interaction between the Embassy and the users we have constructed this website which I invite you to visit together with our Twitter (@ItalyinKenya) and Facebook (Ambasciata d’Italia a Nairobi/ItalyinKenya) accounts to search for and find information and news that may be of your interest.

A warm greeting to all of you.

Alberto Pieri
Ambassador of Italy
