    For the convenience of hunting clientele visiting Namibia and bringing along their personal hunting rifles, the Namibian Police has implemented an online firearm import application facility at Hosea Kutako International Airport.

    Please find attached the import application form for submission prior to arrival in Namibia which must be emailed to the Namibian Police at firearmairport@nampol.na. Please note that at this stage, this procedure is only applicable to Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek.

    Please remember that any scanned document should not exceed 1MB in size when sent to this address.

    Nice. Gotta love how the Namibians continue to do things to attract hunters.

    Traveling with Firearms to Namibia

    Frequently asked questions regarding temporary rifle import into Namibia:

    How much time is required for permit processing after submitting your online application to firearmairport@nampol.na?
    You will most likely not receive a response from this address upon submission, but officials will start processing your application.
    We recommend that you submit your online application about 2-3 weeks prior to arrival into Namibia. Please bring along the original application form when entering Namibia and proceed to the arms and ammunition counter after clearing entry with the Immigration Service Counters.

    What guidelines do I need to keep in mind when traveling with fire arms?
    Please always check with the airline you are traveling with, to assure your firearms arrive hazzle free at your destination. Different airlines have different arrangements at different ports. Should an airline have an agreement with a connecting airline, it will be easier to travel with fire arms. Please consult your travel agent or keep a close eye on your booking confirmation when booking online.

    What visa requirements are applicable?
    This depends in its entirety on your nationality. Please consult your travel agency or an updated website listing visa requirements per country.

    This only pertains to hunters traveling from the USA to Namibia but I highly recommend Having a customs form 4457 ( Certificate Of Registration For Personal Effects Taken Abroad). It is unfathomable in some places that you can own a firearm without an actual license so it makes it easier to just hand them the 4457 as your "license" for that firearm when asked.
