Services are gradually resuming at the Department of Refugee Services (DRS)/UNHCR joint reception center on General Mathenge Road, Westlands Nairobi, Kenya. As we need to limit the number of people accessing the facility to prevent the spread of COVID-19, ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WILL BE ADMITTED. You can make an appointment by calling the toll-free helpline on 1517 or by sending an email to [email protected]. You will then receive a confirmation SMS with the date and time of your appointment. Without the confirmation SMS you will be not assisted.
Welcome to the ‘Help’ website run by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Here, refugees, asylum-seekers and stateless persons can find information to help them know more about their rights, obligations and the services available to them in Kenya.
