Angola: Online portal for tourism visa applications now open


1 min read

The immigration authority in Angola has opened the online portal for foreign nationals to submit Tourism Visa applications, following the recent replacement of the Ordinary Visa with the Tourism Visa for business and tourist trips.

The online system is expected to streamline the visa application process by removing the need to apply at an Angolan consular post prior to travel. This is likely to reduce processing times significantly.

Prior to the launch of the new portal, visa applicants had to appear at an Angolan consular post to file their applications.

The online portal is available for Tourism Visas, which replaced the Ordinary Visa in July.

The Tourism Visa is available for business visitors travelling for prospective business opportunities or to participate in scientific or technological activities, and for tourists on family, recreational, sporting or cultural visits.
