Namibia Omicron travel restrictions and requirements. Updated

Namibia travel requirements. Test: Passengers must hold a negative RT-PCR digital test certificate obtained within 72 hours prior to arrival. Digital test certificates must be based on the African Union's Trusted Travel Guidelines and the United Nations Development Programme sponsored Global Haven Program. Passengers entering or transiting through Namibia from countries not yet part of the Trusted Travel initiative should use Global Haven for Covid-19 test results.

From 1st December 2021, only test certificates obtained on the Trusted Travel Platform or verified via Global Haven will be accepted for entry.

 Test on Arrival: Passengers aged 5 years and older travelling from India and other Covid-19 high risk countries must take another PCR test 7 days after arrival.
 Form on Arrival: Passengers must submit a completed Heath Questionnaire and a complete travel itinerary on arrival.
 Test and Quarantine on Arrival: Passengers who hold a negative PCR test older than 72 hours on arrival must quarantine for 7 days on arrival.

Aircraft and marine vessel crew members, humanitarian aid workers, essential service providers, or operators and drivers of cross-border transport vehicles will be subject to testing and quarantine on arrival if they do not hold a negative PCR test certificate.

Passengers who spend more than 7 days outside Namibia must hold a negative PCR test result or they will be subject to quarantine. These passengers will be subject to PCR testing on the 7th day of quarantine and will be released if a negative result is received, or subject to further isolation if a positive result is received.

The quarantine requirement does not apply to passengers who hold a valid De-isolation Certificate not older than 3 months from the date of discharge from isolation, issued by the health authority in the country of departure.
