“The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is you…” or incomplete paperwork…
Therefore, we made an inventory of some necessary forms and lists that you may need on your hunting trip to Namibia.

You will need this form upon arrival in and departure from Namibia. Feel free to print the PDF and fill it in beforehand. Keep it close to your passport.

Application for Import Permit to Namibia
This form can be completed at the airport to apply for your temporary firearm import permit, which will then be issued. We recommend you print and complete this form beforehand, and carry it with you to be signed and stamped at the airport in Namibia.
You can also apply electronically for this temporary permit before arriving in Namibia. You need to complete the Fire-Arm Application Form and e-mail it to the Namibian Police at email@example.com.
CBP Form / Proof of Fire-Arm Ownership
Customs Declaration Form 4457 will provide you with proof for the customs agent that you bought your items in the States so that you do not have to pay duty or tax on them.
CBP Form 4457
We recommend you read the following information concerning rife export from the USA -> Guidance for U.S. Persons Travelling outside the U.S. with fire-arms and ammunition.
Different countries may have different requirements. Contact your local customs office or travel agent for more information.
Firearms and Airways
We have firearms for rent should you not have, or want to travel with your own. Please head over to “Hunting Information” for more info on rifle hire.
Please take note that not all airways support hunting and thus do not allow you to travel with your firearm. You may end up at your hunting destination without your fire-arm. Please check to see if your chosen airways allow you to travel with your firearm.
Try to avoid traveling through Heathrow with your firearm.
The best routes to Southern Africa are Atlanta – Johannesburg – Windhoek, Namibia.
Another good route is directly through Frankfort – Windhoek, Namibia.
Traveling through Amsterdam offers good access to several Southern Africa countries, but this route requires advance notification and approval to travel with firearms in your possession.
