Angola Work Visa is a temporary 1-year solution for overseas professionals and technicians who seek to contribute their skills to a developing Angolan economy and especially such booming and privileged sectors as oil and diamond production, mining, and national reconstruction. Being hired by an Angola-based well-established company is the ultimate condition for getting the Angolan work permit. Granted for 1 year with a possibility of extension, this pass allows overseas employees to bring their families along to the country. Due to high salaries in these hard, but very lucrative niches, Angola Work Visa is one of the most asked-for visas on the planet.

The hiring Angolan firm is obliged to provide such information:
The foreign employee must provide such information:
Please take into account that Angola government requires some documents to be endorsed in the country’s embassy before attaching them to the Angola work visa application. Papers that must be endorsed are:
Please carefully consider Angola’s criteria to the submitted papers: some of them must be endorsed and all of them must be in perfect Portuguese and compiled according to the standards. If your documents are in another language, enlisting a professional translation service is crucial. If you aren’t certain that you are able to cope with the paperwork and other application niceties, it is reasonable to entrust a visa professional with this task.
It usually takes our team 2-3 months to process the Work Visa for Angola. After the issuance, the holder must use his/her Work Visa for entering Angola during 60 days. We do not advise you to buy an airplane ticket until your work pass approval is decided.
The Angola-based firm that hires a foreigner lodges the application at the Ministry of Migration and Foreigners. In a few weeks, the employer must submit the endorsed Letter of Invitation. After this submission, the foreigner can come to the Angola Embassy in his/her country and apply for the Ordinary Visa (if this employer has never worked in this country before). The visa is usually ready in two weeks, and it gives the foreigner an entry permit to Angola for 30 days during which this visa must be converted into the work pass applied by the employer (if the government approves it). If during this month the work visa can’t be obtained, the foreigner must leave Angola for getting a new ordinary visa.
As you can see, the procedure is very complicated and requires wise strategizing and considering lots of factors. The scheme works well only if actions of both the employer and the foreigner are well-coordinated and no issues with paperwork arise. This can be achieved by enlisting visa professionals who have an intense experience in getting work visas for Angola.
The 12-month work permit for Angola is extendable. Before the visa terminates, it can be extended for another year but only two times. This makes 3 years of total visa duration. Please take into consideration that the 30-day ordinary visa on which foreigners arrive in Angola in the beginning isn’t extendable. If you fail to convert this ordinary visa into a work one (this can happen because the Angola government rejects the employer’s work pass application), you are required to leave Angola. To avoid such frustrating situations, it is crucial to involve a professional visa backup.
