Travelling with minors to Namibia

In line with other SADC Countries (Botswana and South Africa) Namibia is very aware of issues surrounding child trafficking and is being proactive in ensuring that such an event does not occur within our borders. Our Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration issued a press release back in 2016 regarding the world-wide, disturbing issue of child trafficking. No incidents in Namibia have been recorded, and we applaud the Government’s zero tolerance policy on this matter. Yet, there is no legislation in this regard; however, the Immigration Officials at our borders and International Airports are now being pro-active in ensuring that minors (children under the age of 18) are legitimately travelling. Immigration officials are requesting the following information from overseas travelers:

If travelling with both parents:

  • Full birth certificate

If travelling with only one parent:

  • Full birth certificate
  • Parental Consent Affidavit (attached example to fill in)
  • Or death certificate of parent
  • Or legal declaration of sole custody

If travelling with neither parent, with friends/family:

  • Full birth certificate
  • Parental Consent Affidavit from both parents (attached example to fill in)
  • Or death certificate of parent(s)
  • Legal declaration of custody of child
  • Certified copies of passports/identity documents legal parents/guardians
  • Contact details of legal parents/guardians

Unaccompanied minors:

  • Full birth certificate
  • Parental Consent Affidavit from both parents (attached example to fill in)
  • Or death certificate of parent(s)
  • Legal declaration of custody of child
  • Certified copies of passports/identity documents legal parents/guardians
  • Contact details of legal parents/guardians
  • Letter from person who will receive the child in Namibia confirming knowledge of child’s visit (see example attached)
  • Contact details of person receiving the child
  • Copy of identity document/passport/legal status in Namibia of person receiving the child

These measures are affirming Namibia’s Child Protection Act and show Namibia’s commitment to the Act which includes the United Nations’ Protocol on international child trafficking.
