The Roads Authority (RA) has confirmed that in its efforts to mitigate the high risk of Covid exposure at its offices countrywide, it will be operating with reduced staff until the end of June 2021.
The staff reduction affects NaTIS offices as well as the Transport Regulations Permits Office in Windhoek. In a statement issued yesterday, the RA noted that a limited number of clients will be allowed into cash halls and thus appealed to clients to go to offices for only urgent NaTIS services to avoid long queues and congestion.
Clients in Windhoek are also requested to use the drive-through facilities at the NaTIS Centre in the Northern Industrial Area for vehicle licence renewals. Clients have a 21-day grace period after the expiry date to renew their vehicle licenses and no penalties will be charged, during the grace period.
Roads Authority clients are also encouraged to make use of debit or credit card facilities when making a payment, to wear a facemask at all times and to adhere to the set precautionary measures.
“The safety of our clients and staff is of paramount importance, hence, the RA will continue to offer a safe and conducive environment for all,” said RA spokesperson, Hileni Fillemon.
