Guidelines for Transiting unregistered vehicles from Namibia to Zimbabwe or Zambia via Mamuno or Ngoma Border Posts

On 27 December, 2013, we wrote an article announcing the IMMEDIATE BAN ON UNREGISTERED VEHICLES PLYING BOTSWANA ROADS . The announcement was made on 19-12-13 by the Permanent Secretary in the  Ministry of Transport & Communications in Botswana. The reasons were stipulated in the notice.(Please refer to article link above)
 
Since the ban in 2013, there has been problems for people transporting vehicles from Namibia to Zambia or Zimbabwe as the tried to avoid passing through Namibia.
On 14-02-2014, we shared our experience of driving from Namibia to Zimbabwe or Zambia avoiding Botswana :-


transkalahari border, Mamuno Border, Shipping cars to Botswana,



















Now to address some of the problems that include reducing the distance between Namibia and Zimbabwe or Zambia, the Department of Road Transport and Safety  of Botswana has given guidance on the new requirements allowing vehicles to pass through Botswana's Mamuno and Ngoma  Border Posts. 
In summary- :
  1. Temporary import permits issued by:- Department of Road Transport and Safety (DRTS)  have been replaced with Single Trip permits to be issued by Botswana Unified Revenue Services (BURS)
  2. Vehicles under 3500kg are not allowed to drive through Botswana Roads. They can only pass when they are loaded on a car transporter/ Vehicle carrier. 
  3. Vehicles over 3500kg can  drive through Botswana Roads, on condition that they get  A SINGLE TRIP PERMIT that is valid for 12 hours only. Departure time will be endorsed by BURS by means of a date stamp on the permit and if vehicle is found to have exceeded the stipulated transit time, the driver will be rendered liable to a charge ( that was not specified at the time of writing this article) 

COST OF SINGLE TRIP PERMIT

On 02-05-2017, the Acting Director of  Department of Road Transport and Safety-  A. Modukanale, issued a Directive REF:DRTS/7/1/1/ XX11 (6) stating that there will be a fee to be paid for the single entry permit.
