Immigration officials recognised for serving tourists

The Gondwana Collection Namibia team recently embarked on a mission to Hosea Kutako International Airport (HKIA) to honour immigration officials as tourism heroes by gifting them with tokens of appreciation.

Gondwana Collection executive assistant to brand and marketing director Maggie Shivute says gift boxes were delivered to HKIA as a token of appreciation for the dedication displayed by immigration officials in welcoming visitors to Namibia, including those who attended the state funeral of president Hage Geingob recently.

Shivute says the campaign serves as a testament to the inclusive spirit that unites the nation.

Gondwana has committed N$1 million, half in cash and the other half in kind, for the tokens.

“The campaign was launched last year at parliament, where key figures from various sectors expressed their support. The initiative focuses on recognising and rewarding those who contribute to safety, hospitality, kindness, care and preservation of Namibian tourism,” says Shivute.

She says Namibia is well-known for its breathtaking landscapes and warm hospitality but the country faces challenges that necessitate united efforts to ensure the well-being of tourists and communities.

The Tourism Heroes Campaign aims to focus on those who go beyond supporting and caring for visitors and the community with the ultimate goal to sposition Namibia as the preferred destination for travellers seeking authentic hospitality in Africa, Shivute says.

“I extend our deepest gratitude for the tireless commitment to the cause of tourism made by immigration officials. Your dedication has not gone unnoticed and we applaud your unwavering efforts to make a positive impact in the tourism industry,” she says.
