Angola has launched an online portal for tourism visa applications!
Angola has launched an online portal ("SME PORTAL") for foreign nationals to submit applications for tourism visas. Previously, travellers planing to visit the country had to to apply for a visa at an Angolan consular post prior to their trip. This took up to 20 days to process from the time of submission of the application. The new processing time is within 24 hours after applying for the tourism visa. Once issued, the tourism visa must be used within 60 days. It is valid for one or multiple entries, allows the stay in Angola for a period of up to 30 days and can be extended once for an equal period.
