Namibia to Issue 5-year Visa to South African Business People

Namibian President Hage Geingob on Thursday announced that his government will issue five-year visas to South African business people.

The decision followed complaints by some Namibian people doing business with South African citizens, Geingob said when addressing the non-profit financial organization Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry.


Geingob said the current policy of two-year business visas to South African citizens has unfortunately hampered investment and economic growth.

The president said the government is also planning to introduce e-visas to South African citizens.

South Africa is Namibia’s largest trading partner in the South African Development Community, a 16-member inter-governmental organization.
