In a briefing on October 21, Namibian President, Dr Hage G. Geingob, announced new health and safety measures for travel that will be implemented from 22 October until midnight on 30 November.
These include the withdrawal of the mandatory re-taking of the PCR test after five days in the country. Now travellers only need to present a negative PCR test that is no older than 72 hours. No further testing is required.
Travellers who arrive with a negative test that is older than 72 hours but not older than seven days will be allowed to enter but must undergo a seven-day supervised quarantine at home or at a tourism facility.
Namibia has recently been removed from the restricted lists of Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
