Those going to Angola for short-term visits for holiday or business require a visitor visa.
There is also the option of short-stay visas, which may be obtained for urgent reasons such as attending a meeting or funeral, or for seeking medical treatment in the country. They may also be granted to technicians repairing machinery in the oil sector or sailors who are joining a ship docked in Angolan ports.
Holders of visitor or short-stay visas aren't allowed to engage in any gainful activity or establish residence in Angola. Applicants may need to submit an itinerary and air ticket when applying for short-term visas.
