Angola introduces visa-free entry for citizens of over 90 countries to boost tourism

Angola will allow citizens from more than 90 countries to enter the southern African country without a visa for stays of up to 90 days to promote its tourism industry.

The 90-day visa-free stay is offered to those who enter the nation solely for tourism purposes.

Angolan President João Lourenço has instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to inform the countries concerned about the granting of exemptions from tourist visas.

Fourteen African nations have been included in the list of countries eligible for visa-free entry.

These are Algeria, Botswana, Cape Verde, Eswatini, Equatorial Guinea, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Rwanda, the Seychelles, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

Travellers from South Africa have been able to visit Angola without the need for a visa since December 2017.

This development came after both nations signed an agreement to abolish visa requirements.

Only five African nations (Seychelles, Mozambique, Rwanda, Comoros, and Madagascar) grant visa-free entry or visas upon arrival to citizens of all African nations.

Meanwhile, Asia has 11 countries on the list, while Europe has 35.

The United States, Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Russia, and China were identified as the top foreign countries of priority for Angola.

The National Museum of Slavery, warm Atlantic beaches, the sub-Saharan Namib desert, and several rivers are among the country's most well-known tourist attractions.
