Namibia has officially launched its online tourist visa application service with the aim of facilitating tourism and boosting economic growth. The new service aligns with Namibia’s broader push toward digitalization and e-governance.
Earlier in the year, Namibia introduced visas on arrival, which led to a significant increase in tourist arrivals and a positive impact on the country’s economy. The online tourist visa application service is expected to further enhance the tourism industry’s performance and contribute to employment, especially among youth and women.
To address security concerns, the system has been carefully designed with security in mind, ensuring a user-friendly facility that enhances convenience and efficiency. Travelers from around the world can now apply for tourist or holiday visas to Namibia from the comfort of their homes, streamlining and expediting the visa application process.
This move reflects Namibia’s commitment to embracing digital solutions to improve its tourism sector and make the country more accessible to visitors, ultimately driving economic growth in the process.
