The Work visa is granted to foreign citizens who obtain a contract of temporary employment in the interest of the State or on behalf of an Angolan Chartered Company.
The visa must be used within 60 days after its issuance and is valid for 12 months stay in Angola and it can be extended twice. It entitles the holder to multiple entries and to engage solely in the professional activity for which the visa was issued for and to work only for the employer whom requested it. It does not entitle the holder to establish residence in Angola. The employer shall notify the appropriate authority of any change in the duration of the contract for purposes of compliance with the law. Companions/family members must apply for a Temporary Stay Visa.
Applicants are advised that possessing a airfare ticket does NOT entitle the granting of the visa.
