Two-way Radio Permits in Botswana
Besides the actual Botswana film permits and visas, there are complex issues around radios, which requires negotiations. The use of two-way radios is strictly controlled due to security concerns – and all two-way radios entering Botswana have to be pre-licensed with the Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority (BOCRA) by location, who also issue frequencies for use. There are two solutions.
Local Operator – the first – and obvious solution – is to use a local (Botswana) supplier/operator. Unfortunately, because of a Dollar-based economy, and monopoly, the costs are quite prohibitive.
License your own – the two-way radios we supply through our preferred partner are already approved by BOCRA, and we have built up a relationship with BOCRA over the years which makes the acquiring of licenses and frequencies quick and affordable.
