Something not right?

Description

The staffs were friendly and professional but also strict on requirements to obtain a visa. Applications are only accepted on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9:00-12:00 and visas can be picked up on Fridays. You actually keep your passport until Thursday when you have to come in to register fingerprints and pay the visa fee and thereby finish your application. The following is needed to obtain a one month single entry tourist visa:

3 passport photos with white (!) background
Filled out form provided by embassy
Passport copy
International driver license copy
Vehicle paper copy
Yellow fever certificate copy
Bank statement or copy of credit card (front suffices)
Letter of introduction explaining your situation and listing all the countries you will travel through
Itinerary describing your date of entry into Angola and places/sights you want to visit
Equivalent of 160US$ (116,80€) in Cedi (recently changed from US$ to Cedi)

Note that we were not allowed to place several copies on the same paper (e.g. driver license and yellow fewer certificate). The visa is valid for 2 months from date of issue which means you have to enter Angola before the expiry date and are then allowed to spend one month in the country. We tried everything to extend these 2 months or let them write down a later date of issue but to no avail. They were also not allowed to issue us with multiple entry visas which not long ago was still possible. On both matters several phone calls from different staff members were made with Luanda without results.

PS: People visiting this embassy after us sometimes had to have all paperwork in Portuguese!

Photos

We don't have any photos of this place yet.
Why? By checking in after you've visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.

Latest Check-Ins

Visa would have been possible, as stated. But it is only valid for 2 Months, also as stated. No way to extend the validity. 2 Month is too short for us to reach Angola. That's why we did not apply, we will try in Congo.

Helpful Staff, 300 USD for Multi Visa, 150 for single :(. Need to translate the letter of Motivation in portugues.

All the same documents as the previous user but also a photocopy of visa for ghana.

160 dollars which you pay at a Stanbic bank down the road after they give you the slips. Submitted on Monday and they called us on Thursday to collect. Very professional and nice.

Good place to get Angolan visa.
