Entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Entry to Namibia

Airports are open as well as sea ports and some land borders. If intending to use a land border, you should check that it is open before travelling.

Trusted Travel System

From 15 November, Namibia commenced use of the Trusted Travel Platform to verify COVID-19 tests taken before travel to Namibia. Accredited laboratories testing can be found on the Trusted Travel website. Those travelling to Namibia with test results from non-Trusted Travel compliant laboratories will be required to upload a copy of their results on the Global Haven System for authentication.

From 15 January 2022, only test results obtained from the Trusted Travel Platform or verified on the Global Haven system will be valid for entry into Namibia.

For enquiries on the Trusted Travel System, email public.relations@mhss.gov.na.

Testing before arrival

Any person entering Namibia must present proof on arrival in Namibia of a negative COVID-19 test taken in the country of departure. The test result must not be older than 72 hours (calculated from the time that the sample for testing was taken) at the time of entry into Namibia. This requirement also applies to anyone who has been vaccinated against COVID-19, a negative test must still be produced before entry into the country. Antigen Rapid Diagnostic Test results are not accepted for entry into Namibia. In addition, random PCR tests will be conducted on those entering Namibia.

Anyone arriving with a PCR test result older than 72 hours will be required to pay for a PCR test on arrival, and to enter quarantine at their own cost until a negative rest result is obtained.

Any person who was previously infected with COVID-19, and who isolated but is still testing positive, will not be subjected to mandatory quarantine provided that they have a valid de-isolation certificate. The certificate must be no older than 3 months from the date of discharge of isolation, and must have been issued by the health authority in the country of departure.

Permanent residents do not need to provide a negative test on arrival but if they do not, they will be required to pay for and undertake a PCR test on arrival, and be required to quarantine at their own cost until a negative result has been produced. You should check with your airline for any regulations they might have for a negative test result in order to travel.

You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.
