One of the oldest places on Earth, Namibia is a magical and magnificent destination which boasts a seemingly endless expanse and pure, untouched wilderness.
Perhaps best known for the iconic sand dunes of Sossusvlei and its' haunting Skeleton Coast, the country is also home to an array of high-octane activities and superb experiences, from visiting the world's second largest canyon or meeting the desert Himba people, to exploring the Zambezi Region's striking floodplains.
To help you plan your holiday to Namibia, our Africa expert Simon has put together a short guide on everything you need to know about travelling to Namibia post-lockdown.
Currently, entry to Namibia is only allowed via Hosea Kutako International Airport at Windhoek. All passengers must have a negative PCR result not older than 72 hours before boarding to be allowed entry into Namibia and they must provide their itinerary to the authorities on arrival.
Travellers do not need to quarantine on arrival and can proceed with their planned itinerary. However, tourists must take a further Covid test at an authorised clinic on day five of their holiday and must be reachable on day seven to receive their results. If the test is negative, the traveller can proceed as planned but if it is positive they will have go into isolation for 10 days, either hospital-based or non-hospital based depending on their clinical condition. Tourists must have medical insurance that covers medical care.
There are no such restrictions but tourists are expected to follow social distancing and hygiene measures and comply with the testing rules outlined above.
The Ministry of Health and Social Services has implemented Covid-19 health and safety protocols. All tourism and hospitality establishments and facilities must obtain a health certification permit prior to receiving guests.
