The move passed in a resolution last week will allow visa-free entry for 90-day stays to nationals from over 90 countries.
The new resolution is contained in Presidential Decree Number 189/23 of 29 September 2023. It comes as the southern African country opens its borders to visitors from a large number of countries to boost its tourism sector.
Fourteen African nations are on the list for the visa-free entry. These include Tanzania, Eswatini, Morocco, Lesotho, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Equatorial Guinea, Botswana, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Seychelles, Cape Verde and Algeria.
South Africans have not needed visas for Angola since 1 December 2017, when a visa-abolition agreement was signed between both nations.
Only five African countries (Seychelles, Mozambique, Rwanda, Comoros and Madagascar) offer visa-free access or visas on arrival to citizens of all African countries. Angola is the second largest oil producer in Africa. Africa News
