June 2011


The CAAB has advised that all passengers travelling by light aircraft out of Maun airport (applicable to both domestic and international travel) are required to present official personal identification documents at the security check-point.

The only acceptable documents are National Identity Cards (Omang) for Botswana citizens, Passports for non-Batswana and Birth Certificates for children without Passports or Omangs.

Driver’s licences, photocopies or any other form of picture identification that is not a Passport, Omang or Birth Certificate will not be accepted.

So, it’s very important that passengers are in possession of the relevant identification document when they check-in at Maun airport, and throughout their travels in Botswana. (This is especially relevant to residents of Botswana who are self-driving to Maun, as they may not think it necessary to bring with passports for domestic travel!)

Should passengers not be able to produce one of these identification documents to Airport Security when checking in for their flight, they will be denied boarding.
