Angola: Work Visa no Longer Limited to Three Years

Latest update on Angola’s work visa which is no longer limited to three years.

Presidential Decree No. 151/17 of 4 July 2017 eliminates the three- year maximum duration for foreign nationals for work visas established in Article 75.1 of the Visa Law Regulations.

Work visas are now approved for the duration of the foreign national employee’s employment agreement, according to the new rule.

The change has not yet been applied by the immigration authorities in Angola, and the Petroleum Ministry has not yet confirmed whether this rule will also apply to companies in the oil and gas sector.
