Travel

We are happy to announce that Namibia is once again open to international tourists! Hosea Kutako International Airport will be open from 1 September 2020.

Tourism

Government announced its intention to conduct a targeted International Tourism Revival Initiative in collaboration with the industry. This initiative commenced on Monday, 3 August 2020.

International tourists arriving in Namibia will be required to present a 72 hour negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test Result. They will not be subjected to a mandatory quarantine.

International tourists will be able to proceed to their pre-booked destinations in Namibia upon their arrival in the country. They will then be swabbed for Covid 19 on day five of their stay anywhere they find themselves in the country. They must also be available to receive their results on day 7.

The modalities have been carefully negotiated and agreed upon, so as to achieve the dual objective of stimulating our tourism sector and safeguarding public health. Continuous assessments will be conducted throughout this trial, which will inform and strengthen preparations for the imminent reopening of Points of Entry under STAGE 5.

Namibia's current situation and response

As of this time (28 August 2020), the rate of infection continues to accelerate with Namibia having recorded 6906 confirmed cases.

The Namibian government has invested significantly in increasing testing capacity, enabling us to test 1160 samples on average per day at local laboratories.

It is crucial that we enhance our ability to speedily identify infected citizens in order to mitigate the spread of the virus and to tailor an informed response. For this reason we will continue to strenthen our national testing capacity.

At present, Namibia has the highest rate of new infections per population on the continent with confirmed cases in the majority of the 34 health districts. In terms of testing coverage, Namibia has tested 21 people per one thousand persons, as at 27 August 2020. This is among the highest testing coverage on the continent, surpassed only by South Africa and Rwanda.

As we review and adapt the national measures today, we are targeting efforts to respond strategically to the situation on the ground, and in the best manner to protect Namibian lives and livelihoods.

Erongo region accounts for 3400 cases or 49.2 percent of the total number of confirmed cases in the country. The Khomas region and Windhoek in particular has shown a sharp rise in the rate of infection. Windhoek now accounts for 2792 cases or 40 percent of the total confirmed cases. //Karas region records the third highest number, with 132 confirmed cases. As of today, 65 of our citizens have lost their lives due to the virus.

The government calls on all citizens to exercise the utmost caution in their behaviour and conduct and to adhere to protocols. Each one of us must display leadership by safeguarding our lives and the lives of those around us. Discipline and responsibiity must begin at home.

With evolving scientific knowledge, we are learning more about this novel coronavirus each day and using this knowledge to adapt and hone our national response. We now know that the period of both quarantine and isolation can be shorter. There are encouraging supportive treatments that can improve survival. One of those drugs, 'REMDESIVIR', which is considered to be most effective in the world right now, arrived in Namibia on Monday. We are rising to the challenge of both preventing new infections, while also providing the best possible treatment for those who do become infected.

In light of the unfolding situation in the country, it has been resolved that the current dispensation of STAGE 3 Regulations be extended across all 14 regions until 12 September 2020. These include the following measures:

  • Travel restructions remain in force in the Khomas Region, prohibiting exit and entry into the City of Windhoek, Okahandja and Rehoboth Local Authority Areas.
  • The exit and entry travel restrictions on the Walvis Bay, Swakopmund and Arandis areas in the Erongo Region is hereby lifted.
In addition:
  • The daily curfew from 20:00 to 05:00 is extended countrywide
  • Public gatherings remain limited to a maximum of 10 persons
  • Alcohol is to be sold for off-site consumption only
  • Restaurants, hotels and the like, outside of the restricted areas, may sell meals and alcohol to be consumed on the premises during specified trading hours and subject to curfew hours
  • Restaurants, hotels and the like, inside of the restricted areas, will only operate on a take-away basis and the sale of alcohol is probibited.

In the Interest of All

Let us remain united and steadfast, as responsible citizens. Let us be our brother and sister's keeper and come together in a spirit of patience, kindness, empathy and understanding. Let us keep the faith and stand in prayer for our Nation

Insurance

Insurance: Vehicles come with various insurance options. Renting with an excess means paying a lower daily rate but assuming responsibility for a higher amount up to the excess amount, if there are any damages to the vehicle. Renting with less excess means paying a higher daily rate, but being responsible for up to a smaller amount should the vehicle be damaged in any way (effectively you are buying additional insurance).
