Entering Namibia with a passport from US that expires in 5 months. In Namibia for 7 days with ticket to leave. What will happen?

  • By what means are you entering Namibia? – Jacob Horbulyk Nov 17 '17 at 15:24
  • Maybe he wants to go to Namibia for 7 days but his passport is expiring in 5 months. – Newton Nov 17 '17 at 15:47
  • The question has been answered, so I don't understand why people are voting to close as unclear. – David Richerby Nov 18 '17 at 20:33

As stated in Timatic, the database used by airlines:

Passports and other documents accepted for entry must be valid for a minimum of 6 months beyond the period of intended stay.

If the check-in staff is diligent enough, they'll check this and deny the passenger boarding.

If they make it to Namibia, they'll be kicked straight back home and the airline will be heavily fined, and will make the passenger pay for it and could ban them from flying with them again.

So in short: just don't try!
