Zambia’s High Commissioner to Namibia Stella Libongani has advised Zambians intending to enter Namibia to notify the Mission in Lusaka in writing, 14 days prior to travel.
Ms Libongani stated that the Republic of Namibia has reopened selected points of entry including Katima Mulilo border post, effective October 14, 2020, but that entry into the country is still subject to applicable health regulations.
All travelers must have a negative SARS-COV-2 PCR test result, which is not older than seven (07) days.
The travellers will be subjected to thorough screening at points of entry and must undergo mandatory quarantine for seven (07) days at own cost. All persons permitted to enter Namibia will have to undergo testing for Covid-19 during the period of quarantine.
In addition, the travellers are required to complete and submit prescribed forms and hand them to officials upon arrival to ensure continued surveillance, contact tracing and proper follow up of possible cases.
The High Commissioner urged all Zambians returning to or wishing to travel to Namibia for business, educational, health and tourism purposes to strictly adhere to the health regulations set to control the spread of Covid-19.
Ms Libongani stated that the Mission will notify the general public in Zambia on further developments in due course.
Issued by High Commission of the Republic of Zambia.
