– They may then proceed to their pre-booked destination of choice and will be able to partake in all activities for the number of days booked at any particular establishment.
– Travellers can proceed to their next destination at any time, provided that they are available for testing (wherever located) on Day 5 of their travels in Namibia.
– On Day 7, travellers are required to be reachable to be informed of their results.
– A negative result will allow the traveller to continue with their itinerary.
