​Functions of the Embassy of Spain.

The Embassy of Spain in Nairobi permanently represents Spain in Kenya, Somalia and Uganda. The functions of the Embassy consist mainly in:
  • representing Spain in Kenya, Somalia and Uganda;
  • protecting in Kenya, Somalia and Uganda the interests of Spain and of its nationals, within the limits permitted by international law;
  • negotiating with the Governments of Kenya, Somalia and Uganda;
  • ascertaining by all lawful means conditions and developments in Kenya, Somalia and Uganda, and reporting thereon to the Spanish Government;
  • promoting friendly relations with Kenya, Somalia and Uganda, and developing their economic, cultural and scientific relations; and
  • cooperating with the representation bodies of the European Union in the identification, defense and promotion of the interests and objectives of its external action.

The Spanish Embassy in Nairobi is also the Permanent Representation of Spain to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), both based in Nairobi.
 
These functions are regulated in international treaties, such as the Convention on Diplomatic Relations done at Vienna on 18 April 1961, and in Spanish laws and regulations, specially in Law 2/2014, of 25 March, of the Foreign Action and of the Foreign Service of Spain.
 
More information on the services offered to the Spanish citizens by the Consular Section of the Embassy can be obtained in the sections Consular Services and Living in Kenya (only available in Spanish). On the other hand, the section Information for foreigners contains all the necessary information for foreign citizens who intend to visit, study, work or reside in Spain.
