Namibia eases travel restrictions

In an easing of travel restrictions, travellers to Namibia now only need a negative PCR test. This comes after the country opened to all international travel via Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek on September 1.

In a briefing on October 21, Namibian President, Dr Hage G. Geingob, announced new health and safety measures for travel that will be implemented from October 22 until midnight on November 30.

They include the withdrawal of the mandatory re-taking of the PCR test after five days in the country. Now travellers only need to present a negative PCR test that is not older than 72 hours and no further testing is required.

Travellers who arrive with a negative test that is older than 72 hours but not older than seven days will be allowed to enter but must undergo a seven-day supervised quarantine at home or at a tourism facility.
