Namibian passports are issued to citizens of Namibia to travel internationally.

Namibian passports are green, with the national coat of arms emblazoned on the front cover. "REPUBLIC OF NAMIBIA" is inscribed above the coat of arms and "PASSPORT" is inscribed below. The "Biometric" logo also appears above "PASSPORT". All information in the passport is printed in English with the photo page also translated into French.

History

The first Namibian passports were introduced in 1990, shortly after the country gained its independence from South Africa. In January 2018, a new biometric passport type was introduced; existing non-biometric passports issued until said date continue to be valid until expired.
