Hi everyone! I just came across this question and I am currently very confused!
I am a South African woman that has been married to a Namibian citizen for nearly 5 years. We decided to move to Namibia last year when my husband received a job offer. My husband relocated in January and myself and our son joined him in April.
We went to the department of home affairs to apply for domicile, but were given a whole lot of forms to fill out. I went back to S.A to apply for my police clearance certificate and upon re-entry I was only granted 30 days in the country, being told that it is not my right to get the full 90 days a year.
It has been a nightmare to find out exactly how to and what is needed for me to get my domicile certificate. As I understood from various articles on the internet, I do not need to apply for any special papers to be in the country legally as I am married to a Namibian citizen. When I spoke to a lawyer she mentioned that the paper I need can be printed immediately at home affairs - I am very confused and we would really appreciate assistance on the matter, as this is causing me a lot of tension.
If you could please help with any solid advice because it seems to be impossible to get anything done without legal assistance. We are currently fearing that all our savings will be spent on lawyer fees for something that really should not be so difficult.
As you can imagine it is extremely urgent as I have only 26 days left on my visa.
thank you in advance for your help!
