The (Roman) Catholic Church in Namibia, southwest Africa, is solely composed of a Latin hierarchy,
united in the national Episcopal Conference of Namibia, comprising one ecclesiastical province
consisting of the Metropolitan Archdiocese and two suffragan sees :
a bishopric and, exceptionally, a pre-diocesan, yet non-exempt Apostolic vicariate.

There are no Eastern Catholic or other exempt jurisdictions.

There are no titular sees. All defunct jurisdictions have current successor sees.

There formally is an Apostolic Nunciature to Namibia as papal diplomatic representation (embassy-level), but it(s vested in the Apostolic Nunciature to South Africa in its capital Pretoria.
