Namibia reopens to tourists who can show negative Covid-19 test results

Namibia has reopened to tourists with international flights now operating to and from the country.

From this week, airlines can land at Hosea Kutako International Airport and tourists with negative Covid-19 certificates can visit for a holiday.

Test results must have been issued within 72 hours of a passenger's flight time and all travellers must complete a health questionnaire upon arrival at the airport in Windhoek.

No other airports in the country are accepting international tourists at this point. Temperature scanning will take place upon arrival and passengers showing any symptoms will be tested again for Covid-19 at the airport.

All tourists must also obtain travel insurance that covers medical treatment and unexpected hotel stays and purchase a local mobile number that can be registered with Namibian authorities.

Pre-Covid visa rules continue to apply for entry into the country, with several nationalities able to visit visa-free, or apply for a visa on arrival.
