PASSPORT FREE ENTRY FOR BATSWANA/NAMIBIANS ON THE CARDS

 

Plans are underway for Batswana and Namibians visiting either of the two countries to use their national Identity Cards instead of passport.

This was revealed by President Dr Mokgweetsi Masisi during his remarks this morning at the official opening of the 45th Ghanzi Agricultural Show.

President Masisi said him and Namibian President Hage Geingob have agreed on the matter and await the bureaucracies of the two countries to formalise.

‘It was so easy for us to agree that in the not so distant future we are going to eliminate the need for passports for the citizens of Namibia coming to Botswana and Batswana going to Namibia. All you will need to present, is a valid national identity card then you can traverse across,’ he said.

President Masisi then applauded his counterpart on the Harambee Prosperity Plan, the Namibian Government’s Action Plan towards Prosperity for All, adding that Botswana would learn a lot and benefit from it.
