Angola Visa Information:

Ordinary Visas
Processing wait time DOES NOT include the time required for additional special clearance or administrative processing. These procedures require additional time. Most special clearances are resolved within 30 days of application. When additional administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on individual circumstances of each case. Processing wait time also does not include the time required to return the passport to applicants, by either courier services or the local mail system. The time of stay in the country with this type of visa may not exceed 90 days.

Work Visas
The work visa must be initiated in the country of origin. The Consular office must send the work visa request to the Angolan Service of Migration and Aliens (SME) in Angola for approval. The processing time for a Work Visa takes at least 45 days from the day of its receipt by our office of the completed application.
The work visa is valid for two years and multiple entries are permitted and the validity of the visa may not exceed the period of the contract.
