NO MORE SECURITY CLEARANCES! ~ 2018
« on: January 10, 2018, 12:58:05 PM »
PLEASE NOTE!

You no longer need a security clearance to visit Oranjemund, the town is now fully opened since the end of last year and it's an absolute pleasure to see tourist types wandering the streets with their camera's trying to photograph the ever dwindling herds of domesticated Gemsboks....

Hi Mike, we are thinking of visiting O'Mund. Do we need anything in addition to passports?

Sorry, forgot to ask, Mike, does your Spar stock everything needed or do we need to bring any provisions (a bit of an old timer question because in my day fresh fruit and veggies was a onc a week affair from the back of a jowwells truck ...)

Hi Mike Thurtell

Oranjemund Spar will have everything you need, including fresh fruit and veggies. And I can say that even though I left there 2 years ago!

Enjoy your visit, my turn comes Easter!

Yes, I am!

No visas but safe to take your car papers with you, you are crossing a border and you never know what they needs from you.

...and have a ZA sticker on the back of the car...

There is also a road fund levy on SA cars once you clear the Namibian Customs and Immigration ...

Nada, your house has been vacated again, as we watch Allied Service complete the circle of life and move all their offices back to the Rec Club like it was twenty years ago....
