Tourism Ministry spokesperson Romeo Muyunda said international tourists will be issued with permits to move out of Windhoek, Rehoboth and Okahandja.
On 28 August 2020, President Hage Geingob extended the travel restriction in Windhoek, Rehoboth and Okahandja as well as the curfew.
Muyunda said tourists cannot just show up at the airport but need to be booked with an accredited tour operator or travel agent.
Over 90 tour operators and travel agents have applied for certification to be able to book tours and tourists as part of the tourism revival initiatives.
The Namibia Airports Company indicated that on 11 September the first international commercial flight, despite resuming operations today and they have not received any other airlines scheduled ahead of opening.
However, Muyunda said the ministry has received indications from Ethiopian Airways, Lufthansa airline, Air Namibia and Qatar Airways that they will start flying within this month.
Muyunda said travel restriction in South Africa should be an opportunity for the Namibian tourism landscape to boom.
He said this gives Namibia the advantage to minimise its reliance on South Africa and have airlines fly directly into the country.
