A warm welcome to the website of the High Commission of the Republic of Namibia in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This Mission is concurrently accredited to Cyprus, Greece, Ireland and Malta, as well as covering London-based Multilateral organisations.
This website is an indispensable tool in the Mission’s quest to enhance the free flow of information and knowledge about our country, its people, the limitless tourism, trade and investment potential and various services offered by the Mission to Namibian and foreign nationals and institutions in the UK and beyond. The website further provides you with links to key public and private sector institutions, local media houses, academia and many others for those who want to find out more about Namibia. Pertinent developments regarding Namibia/UK relations as well as activities of the Mission aimed at further strengthening our bilateral relationships also feature as you navigate the site.
And while we have already taken major strides to forge a cordial relationship between Namibia and the UK, there is still much more that can be done. We are particularly keen to further build on cultivating people-to-people exchanges, enhancing Foreign Direct Investment inflows, especially in key areas of gas and oil exploration and increasing the value of our minerals via a process of value addition and beneficiation, attracting a greater number of visitors to our country and developing our human resource capacity, all with a view to improving the socio-economic conditions of our people. I hope that each visitor to this website will be inspired to participate in this important endeavour.
Our website, however, can only provide you with a glimpse of what Namibia has to offer, and I would thus encourage you to use it as your gateway to come and visit Namibia and experience the land of wide open spaces and enjoy our country’s many areas of outstanding natural beauty and other sites of importance for conservation and wildlife. Whether you are a tourist seeking natural splendour in a land of contrast, or an investor seeking rewarding opportunities in a diversifying economy, Namibia will provide you with all your needs and will be a destination that will truly be unforgettable.
Thank you for visiting and for your interest in NAMIBIA.
