Import of Firearms into Namibia
Deputy Commissioner Nangombe: Head Firearms Control Division shared the following with the NAPHA Office:

On behalf of the Namibian Police Force I have the honour to inform your esteemed office that we have moved one step ahead to ensure that our esteemed hunters feel at easy when travelling to Namibia for hunting purposes. We have created an email address where the hunters can forward their applications in advance to enable the Namibian Police Force to consider their applications and upon arrival will be issued with their permit once the verification of the firearms, ammunition and passport has been done.
It is against this background that I am forwarding the attached requirements and application form Pol 573 to be completed and forwarded to We are still working on other port of entries but as a beginning we are targeting to improve the service at Hosea Kutako International Airport due to the high statistics of import permits issued on daily bases.
For any enquiries please contact me and let us inform our clients and esteemed hunters on the new development accordingly.

USA Hunters travelling through South Africa - Customs Form 4457
In last week's newsletter, we reported on the new Form 4457:
Hunters departing the USA and traveling via South Africa with their hunting rifles should note that the South African Police Services’ central firearms desk will no longer accept America’s Department of Homeland Security’s Certificate of Registration, commonly known as CBP Form 4457, if the date in the top right hand corner has expired, even if a US border official has stamped it with a later date.
Please access the NEW CBP Form 4457 here, from Homeland Security’s official website.
Kindly make your hunting clients aware of this and urge them to obtain a new Certificate of Registration, prior to leaving the United States of America.

We have in the meantime become aware that the Form 4457 on the website of the Department of Homeland Security was in fact still the outdated form. 

Herewith please see the NEW CBP Form 4457 (Expiration Date: 31 August 2019).
