How do I apply for a business visa to Angola?
An embassy or consular visa is required to enter Angola. Citizens of a number of countries must go to the Angolan embassy or consulate to apply for a visa. This rule applies to short visits related to tourism or business.
Angola's visa policy requires more than 45 different nationalities to obtain an embassy visa to enter the country, regardless of the purpose of the visit or its duration. Travellers planning to stay in Angola for more than 30 days and/or coming for purposes other than tourism or business are also required to obtain the appropriate visa from the embassy.
Foreign nationals wishing to apply for a business, study, residence or long-term visa to Angola must apply for a visa at the embassy in accordance with the country's immigration policy.
