South African business travellers to Namibia are required to apply for a visa at the Namibian High Commission in Pretoria as part of the country’s new visa regulations.
The Namibian government has started to clamp down on visa requirements and are actively interviewing travellers entering the country. Whereas before corporate travellers often indicated that they would come to Namibia for leisure to avoid the hassle of applying for a business visa, this is now no longer possible. All corporates travelling to Namibia for business meetings or to present at a conference in Namibia can apply for a business visa in Pretoria. The visa costs R390, with an additional handling fee of R80, and the processing time is two and three working days.
