As it stands, to enter/exit Botswana in order to enter Namibia, all travellers must present a negative PCR Covid-19 test result obtained within 72 hours of arrival or departure. Furthermore, a valid vaccine certificate will be required on arrival. Guests will be tested during their stay at the Kasane Immigration Office and will receive their negative PCR certificate on the morning of check-out of Namibia to re-enter Botswana. The cost of the PCR test is R700 per person and will be included on the final invoice.
Please note that Namibia has implemented the African Union’s Trusted Travel System (TTS) for the verification of COVID-19 test results and vaccination certificates prior to travel. This system is already in use in countries like Kenya and Tanzania and enables travellers to embark on a hassle-free journey. A trial phase of the system is underway, if successful, it is intended that use of the platform will be compulsory for all travellers entering Namibia. For more information please visit this website.
