Since then the Embassy has been serving diplomatic and consular functions in Kenya.

With the strengthening of bilateral relations between Korea and Kenya to a wider array of cooperation areas such as trade and investment, industry, science and technology, health, e-Government, agriculture, development and cultural area, the role of the Embassy also has been strengthened.
Amongst various diplomatic missions that our Embassy is serving, the Embassy also committed to open doors for the people of Kenya and Somalia to experience Korea in culture, education and in Korean language. Fully supported Global Korea Scholarships by Korean government are granted to prominent Kenyan and Somalian students every year. Also, there are at least 2 times of TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean) exam held every year in Kenya. Also, 3rd of October is Korean National Foundation day, so the Embassy hosts a reception and celebration. (This year's event has been cancel due to the COVID-19 Pandamic.) In this regard, usually the month of October is celebrated as a Korean cultural period by the Embassy.
