U.S. Citizen Services

In accordance with United States Department of State worldwide regulations in place due to COVID-19 and in line with efforts by the Government of Kenya to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi has now temporarily restricted all routine consular processing. To submit a request for an emergency service, please email Kenya_acs@state.gov. Emergency services can include: a need for urgent travel; needing a new passport for foreign visa requirements; passport and Consular Report of Birth Abroad services for children under 1 year; passport services for minors if both parents are present in country only for a limited time; or other life-or-death situations. All entrants to the U.S. Embassy must wear masks and are subject to body temperature screening, and may be refused entry if displaying an elevated temperature.

American Citizen Services unit is committed to providing information and assistance to U.S. citizens visiting or living in Kenya.
