The four had been sentenced to life imprisonment, along with 12 South Sudanese nationals, for embezzlement of Juba government funds, in June last year.
Their release on Wednesday followed talks between the heads of State of the two countries, Uhuru Kenyatta and Salva Kiir.
Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Monica Juma has warned Kenyans pursuing jobs outside the country to seek the ministry's help in vetting firms offering them employment opportunities before they travel.
