The Ambassador's Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome all our visitors to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Namibia in Paris. This Embassy is concurrently accredited at bilateral level to Italy, Portugal and Spain as well as at multilateral level to FAO, UNESCO and CPLP.

Its main responsibility is to represent the government and the people of Namibia, by maintaining, strengthening and promoting bilateral relations between Namibia and the countries of accreditation.

Here you will find a wide range of information about Namibia and its people with diverse and rich cultural heritage, its limitless tourism, trade and investment potentials. Namibia’s human and natural resources, political and economic stability, substantial infrastructure and advantageous geographic location offer limitless potential as a vibrant commerce hub and gateway to the southern African region with a market volume of upward of 500 million people.

 You will also find information regarding the various consular services offered to Namibian Citizens living in France, Spain, Italy and Portugal as well as citizens of the four countries.

The website will further provide you with links to key public and private sector institutions in Namibia, including local media houses, and the academia, (as well as our Honorary Consulates in the countries of accreditation). This would allow you to have an insight into Namibia’s dynamic economy and pro-business climate which offers an abundance of investment opportunities in various sectors including energy, agriculture, infrastructure, finance, manufacturing, tourism and housing

Our website provides you with a glimpse of what beautiful Namibia has to offer, and I would thus encourage you to use it as your gateway to come and visit Namibia and have first-hand experience of the Land of the Brave. Whether you are a tourist seeking natural splendour in a land of contrast, or an investor seeking rewarding opportunities in a diversifying economy, Namibia will provide you with all your needs and will be a destination that will truly be unforgettable.

Thank you for visiting and for your interest in NAMIBIA.
