Research permit application form
Researchers wishing to carry out research in Botswana will in many cases need a Research Permit from the Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs. (Earlier these permits were issued by the Office of the President.) Such researchers also need to be affiliated with an appropriate institution in Botswana; the most obvious choice is the University of Botswana, but the major Museums also qualify.
The original reason for this page was that the necessary guidelines were difficult to obtain, so we had an unofficial copy of the form here. However, now the official documents can be found on the official government web-site: See Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs page and the PDF format application papers.
The old page can be found in the "oldpages" directory.
