Namibia says the Angolan government should consider extending the visa exemption agreement between the two countries from the current 30 days to 90 days.

The Namibian newspaper quoted defence minister Frans Kapofi, who is also the former home affairs minister as saying that during the 21st session of the Namibia-Angola Joint Commission on Defence and Security that the 90 days would benefit the people of both countries and further solidify the two governments' relations.

“It has been observed that the 30-day entry period provided in the agreement has proven to be too short for our people visiting each country for business, education, tourism, and medical services,” he said.

Kapofi said Namibia is prepared to sign an agreement on extending the visa exemption.

Angola's land borders are still closed since last year to contain the spread of COVID-19, but the country recently re-opened its air space.
