Namibia Immigration (2)

Full Description


Immigration to Namibia:

We’ve found that people wanting to work or settle in Namibia tend to fall into one of the below categories:
1. Persons born in Namibia prior to Independence (1990) wanting to return to Namibia and claim citizenship  more ►

2. Persons wanting to study or work temporarily in Namibia. This requires the issuing, by the Ministry of Home Affairs of two permits. (a) A Temporary Residence Permit For Work Purposes, and (b) a Temporary Work or Study Permit.
Note: In compliance with the Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment legislation, Namibian employers are required to first investigate the opportunities for giving employment to “Previously Disadvantaged” Namibian citizens, and then to ‘other’ Namibian citizens. If the vacant position cannot be filled by either of these groups the employer can then offer the position to a non-citizen. It is then the employer’s responsibility to obtain the Temporary Working Visa and the Temporary Residence Visa for the employee.
