Namibia becomes 87th Member of the HCCH

Today, 19 January 2021, the Republic of Namibia deposited its instrument of acceptance of the Statute, thus becoming the 87th Member of the HCCH.

Namibia has been an HCCH Connected State since 2000 and is currently a Contracting Party to the Apostille and Adoption Conventions. Namibia is the eighth African State to become a Member of the HCCH and its Membership is another important step toward universality and inclusiveness, which are central to the strategic development of the Organisation.

The Permanent Bureau is looking forward to assisting the authorities of Namibia in further strengthening global cross-border legal cooperation through the work of the HCCH.
