Belgian / Gambian Radioamateur Station

Gambian Amateurradio Licence application.

Intro :

If you have a foreign ham licence, you shouldn't have any problem obtaining Gambian licence. On various websites . I found useful information about the Gambian licence : but not correct.

Before you ask for a callsign visit my list on the bottom of this page .

There are of course several hams who have their own callsign used with the preposition C5/.. , there are not included in this list .

So what you need :

You require the Amateur Ham Radio Licence Application form ... with the following information :
  • starting dates of operation .
  • the place where you stay in The Gambia .
  • all your equipment with serial numbers , amplifers antenna systems etc....
  • a copy of your home license , a copy of your HAREC license .
  • a copy of your previous Gambia amateur license .
  • a copy of your passport .
  • you need the offical application form if you obtian for a Gambian Call Sign !!!!!!!!!!!
  • For the Official Amateur Ham Radio Licence Application Form , open my Ham Contact page and ask for a password . When you received your password you can download the official Amateur Ham Radio Licence Application Form on my download page .

So what is the cost :

  • The fee in 2020 = 1000 Dalasi (about 20 Euro) for a license .
  • The fee must be paid to GRA ( Gambia Revenue Authority ) in Kannifing or elswhere .
  • Before you can paid it , you need a TAX Number ( TIN-number) , the fee for a tax number is 50 Dalasis .

You've been warned :

When you arived on the airport the customs will see your licence document and also the document with all your equipment , antennes , tx/rx,ampli etc... signed by PURA , without this document it's possible that all your equipment stay in the airport .
