Timeline and information

Namibia declared a state of emergency on 17 March. From that moment on, foreigners coming from corona affected countries were not allowed into the country anymore.

A week later, on March 24, the government extended the travel ban to all foreigners without a valid resident permit for a period of 30 days.

Namibians are forced to stay in the country and are not allowed to leave. Any residents returning to the country have to go into a mandatory supervised 14-day quarantine period. Only Namibians with a valid reason, for example, the safety or security of the country, will be allowed back in.

A partial lockdown has been introduced for the Khomas region of the country, including capital Windhoek. This lockdown will be imposed as March 27 effect and will last until April 17.

If you are in Namibia, there could be a total lockdown in the upcoming days. President Hage Geingob said on Tuesday, March 31, that people should expect an increase in the measures in the following week after the number of infections rose again.
