ANGOLA INAUGURATES NEW AIRPORT AND WAIVES TOURIST VISA FOR 98 COUNTRIES TO BOOST TOURISM INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT
Angola aims to become a nation that is open to tourism and to enhance its natural and cultural heritage by making it easier for visitors to enjoy it. Achieving this vision relies on creating conditions to attract and welcome tourists.
It is with this spirit that the Government of Angola approved, in September last year, a presidential decree that exempts citizens of 98 countries from the requirement of a tourist visa for stays in Angola for a period of up to 30 days per entry and 90 days per year.
On 10 November, a new airport was inaugurated in Luanda. The Angolan capital now has an airport infrastructure capable of handling 15 million passengers per year. The inauguration of the new airport and the tourist visa exemptions for Angola, covering the main countries that generate tourists internationally, are part of the vision of Angolans to make tourism one of the most important pillars to promote economic growth in a harmonious and diversified manner.
