Iso 3166-2:ke

Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:KE is the entry for Kenya in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Kenya, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 8 provinces.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is KE, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Kenya. The second part is three digits.

Current codes

Subdivision names are listed as in the ISO 3166-2 standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA).

Code Subdivision name (en) Subdivision name (sw)

KE-500 North-Eastern Kaskazini Mashariki

Note : since March 2013, the 8 provinces are no longer legal and have been replaced by 47 counties that are also constituencies for the national senate, with a single subcountry member for the local administration. The 47 counties are still not officially encoded in ISO 3166-2, but are encoded in national Kenyan statistics by (provisional) 2-digit codes.


The following changes to the entry have been announced in newsletters by the ISO 3166/MA since the first publication of ISO 3166-2 in 1998:
