In a joint statement on Tuesday, Kagwe and UK British High Commissioner Jane Marriot said Kenya and the United Kingdom are establishing a system to mutually recognize each others' vaccine certificate.
This is to allow for a vaccine passport programme for travel, particularly in an unprecedented pandemic, he said.
The vaccines recognized by the two countries are Oxford AstraZeneca, Moderna, pfezer and Johnson & Johnson.
Kagwe said the countries have completed the process of recognizing the other countries vaccine certificates.
"We are working as fast as possible to ensure this happens so travel in as smooth as possible for our peeps," he said.
"We are both delighted that Kenya is off the UK read list which is the result of strong collaboration between our government and public health experts."
Last week, the UK government announced the removal of Kenya from the Red list effective September 22 at 4 am in its latest review of Covid - 19 travel restrictions.
This means that Kenyan citizens are now allowed to travel into the country and UK citizens can easily travel to Kenya.
Those travellers returning from 'red list' countries must also provide a negative result on arrival within 72 hours.
They must also quarantine in government - provided facilities at a cost of Sh345,117 (£2,285) per head - covering food, accommodation, transport, and testing.
