Consular Services

The Consular Section assists Namibian citizens in the Bahamas, Belize, Canada, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and United States of America, respectively. We also provide visa services (both non-immigrant and immigrant) to residents of the countries of our accreditation mentioned above.

Services we offer include (but are not limited to) citizen registration, nationality and passport related matters, emergency travel documents, issuance of entry visas, registration of birth, death, marriage, etc. Please note that the embassy can only issue Tourist and Business visas. Work/Study/Research visas must be applied for directly to the Ministry of Home Affairs.

We work with authorities of the host country to assist Namibian victims of crime, monitor arrests of and visits to incarcerated Namibian citizens to ensure that they are being treated in a manner consistent with local and international law, and locate missing Namibians. We are also responsible for assisting Namibian citizens in our consular district in the event of natural disasters or other large-scale emergencies.
