Deputy Commissioner Nangombe: Head Firearms Control Division shared the following with the NAPHA Office:

On behalf of the Namibian Police Force I have the honour to inform your esteemed office that we have moved one step ahead to ensure that our esteemed hunters feel at easy when travelling to Namibia for hunting purposes. We have created an email address where the hunters can forward their applications in advance to enable the Namibian Police Force to consider their applications and upon arrival will be issued with their permit once the verification of the firearms, ammunition and passport has been done.

It is against this background that I am forwarding the attached requirements and application form Pol 573 to be completed and forwarded to firearmairport@nampol.na. We are still working on other port of entries but as a beginning we are targeting to improve the service at Hosea Kutako International Airport due to the high statistics of import permits issued on daily bases.

For any enquiries please contact me and let us inform our clients and esteemed hunters on the new development accordingly.

Bloody brilliant.
One page, electronic processing, streamlining the whole process.

Go Namibia!

Now get the Minister to chat with Air Namibia about dropping the firearms handling fee and they will be set.

I have never spent more then five minutes in the police office before this.
What's funny is they want to stream line the process even further for hunters.

I can only say that Namibia have their heads screwed on straight. Make the process easy for hunters, provide excellent value for money and great hunting and you are going to get a lot more business.

Simplicity! What more could you ask for. Now if just getting a Leopard was this easy.
Hope trip #3 pays off.

I would love to see that happening. But considering that one has to grease the wheels in RSA or get a pre-approved firearms importation permit that sets you back about US $100.00, Namibia it's an excellent deal already. It has just moved back at the top of my list for the next safari.

Just a note
my last group of 4 Polish hunters all with weapons
took a total of around 35 mins to clear weapons with no pre clearance, nothing done before the time. just had correct paperwork
cops were very friendly and helpful

kind regards

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
