Certificate of proof of existence (declarations on the continuation of a pension) must in principle be completed once a year and returned to the relevant institution in order to ensure continued payment of the pension.
The signature of the pensioner must be certified. This confirmation is in principle carried out by an official body in Namibia (for example, all authorities, pension insurance institutions, notaries, banks, hospitals, Red Cross).

Please note that the pensioner must provide the certifying authority or body with a valid photo ID (passport).

Only in exceptional cases, the confirmation can also be made by the German Embassy Windhoek. Please make sure that you arrange an appointment online before coming to the Embassy:
