We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Namibia. The British High Commission in Windhoek provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Namibia.

You can access UK government services while in Namibia.

Get an emergency travel document

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel. If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

Apply online for an emergency travel document if you:

  • are over 16 years old and
  • are a British citizen and
  • have previously owned a British passport

Contact us to apply for an emergency travel document if you are:

  • over 16 years old but have not owned a British passport before or
  • not a British citizen or

Once you have contacted us, you will be advised to make an appointment to apply for an emergency travel document at the British High Commission Windhoek.

Other consular services

Notarial and documentary services

For legal reasons, we’re unable to carry out notarial acts in Commonwealth countries. This includes certifying documents as true copies of originals, administering oaths or taking affidavits. For these or other notarial acts, you should contact a local notary.

A standard letter is available to confirm we do not offer these services in Namibia. You can request the letter by sending your request with your contact details to general.windhoek@fco.gov.uk. This is a free service and no consular fees are charged. Alternatively you can download the Notorial Acts Namibia letter for printing.

We offer a limited range of documentary services. See the list of documentary services we provide.

Consular fees

We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Namibia.
