    I read somewhere this week that there is going to be a limited trial period from somewhere in Aug, and if everything goes well, it will be opened in Sept. However only through the Windhoek airport. I'm not sure about the border crossings by road.

    The current rules are: You need to have a C-19 test and have the certificate that you are negative with you and it must not be older than 74 hours. Once across, you have to go into 7 day quarantine at whatever place you stop first. At the end of 7 days, you have to have another C-19 test done, and if that comes through negative, you will then be allowed to travel in the country. Bit of a schlepp!!! C

    Might be more easier to have someone collect the car at the border. There is a guy I have used a few times based in mariental who normally transport Agri equipments there. Perhaps can help.

    currently only allowed in by air, and then the quarantine etc as mentioned. There has been no official release though of which countries are allowed in. You can try get a special permit to enter by road but that's more for medical issues.

    Also swakopmund is still under lockdown from the rest of nam until end of august.

    I hope our border opens before year end, surely it must.

    That is a long time!

    Some are saying 2021 for border re-opening......
    Let's hope they are wrong
    I see UK is re-introducing some travel restrictions due to a 2nd wave? in Europe.
