The quasi-neutral limit of the Navier-Stokes-Poisson system modeling a viscous plasma with vanishing viscosity coefficients in the half-space R+3 is rigorously proved under a Navier-slip boundary condition for velocity and the Dirichlet boundary condition for electric potential. This is achieved by establishing the nonlinear stability of the approximation solutions involving the strong boundary layer in density and electric potential, which comes from the breakdown of the quasi-neutrality near the boundary, and dealing with the difficulty of the interaction of this strong boundary layer with the weak boundary layer of the velocity field.
