When wishing to obtain a guest license to operate amateur radio in another country, the following questions spring to mind.

1 How does one go about obtaining such a license?
2 What are the requirements needed for a guest license?
3 Where can one obtain the necessary forms?
4 What fees are payable and how can these be paid without going to the authorities personally?
5 What frequencies can one operate on and with what power?
6 What are the addresses, telephone and fax numbers of the Licensing Authority

Let us try and answer these questions as far as the guest license for Namibia is concerned.

1 Application must be made in writing to the Namibian Communications Commission (N.C.C.) at the address given below.
2 The requirements are (a) written application on the prescribed form (b) certified copy of your Amateur Radio operators licence and (c) the prescribed fee.
3 The application form can be obtained on request from the N.C.C. by writing to them at the addresses mentioned below

4 The fee at present is 60.00 Namibian Dollars (or 60 South African Rands.) A bank draft for this amount should accompany your application. To avoid unnecessary delays, the fee can be paid into the account of the N.C.C. and a copy of the deposit slip faxed together with your application to the N.C.C.
