Angola has expanded the short-term visa-exempt program to nationals of nearly 100 countries (including the current visa-exempt countries) with immediate effect.
Nationalities of these countries can now enter Angola without a visa for up to 30 days per entry within a 90-day period per year. The program permits travel for tourism or business purposes, except offshore activities, which requires a work visa or short-term visa.
Travelers must present immigration with a passport valid for at least six months after the intended period of stay and a valid Covid-19 vaccination certificate as required.
Angolan President Joao Lourenco has directed foreign affairs ministry to communicate to the beneficiary countries about the exemption from tourist visas.
Angola’s famous tourist attractions include the tropical Atlantic beaches, the Sub-Saharan Namib desert and several rivers.
For other types of visas such as work, study, medical treatment or residence permit, foreign citizens must apply through formal channels.
