Complaints about Angolan visas may be a thing of the past. The immigration department (SME) is introducing a computerised visa service in its diplomatic missions which will be linked to Luanda and to the major border posts. 32 Angolan consulates are now on-line with another 25 due to come on-line by the end of August. Hopefully this will speed the decision making and standardise procedures world-wide………but let’s wait and see!
In the meantime, always apply in plenty of time (2 months in advance if you can manage it), expect delays and confusion and expect your visa to be issued at the very last minute.
