The striker has joined the Scottish Premiership from Dunfermline for a reported fee of £250,000 and signed a four-year deal.
Nisbet enjoyed a prolific season at the Pars, scoring 23 goals in 32 appearances.
The former Partick Thistle ace has previously been monitored by the Blues, with Kenny Jackett admitting he was offered Nisbet.
However, the Pompey boss told The News he turned down the chance as he has a sufficient number of attacking players under contract.
Nisbet was also said to be wanted by Dundee United, while Hearts are reported to attempted a late swoop.
The 23-year-old has opted for Easter Road, though.
Nisbet told Hibs’ website: ‘I’m proud to be a Hibernian player and I’m grateful to the club for giving me this opportunity.
‘It’s a new challenge for me and I’m confident – with the help of the staff here – that I can continue to improve as a player and help the team.
‘I’ve been working hard on my fitness during the break and I can’t wait to get going.’
Head coach Jack Ross added: ‘We’re delighted to have Kevin on board. It’s a position that we wanted to strengthen in and if you look at his profile, and where he is in his career, then I think it’s a really good fit for both parties.
‘I’m excited by it. We were keen to get him in in January so we’re all pleased to get it over the line now.’
