IMMIGRATION

The Angolan visa process can be very complex and a lengthy process for the work permit. For short term periods, the process is less arduous and can take anywhere between 5-10 Working days depending in the country of Origin. An STV Visa is applied for when being mobilised offshore, and an ordinary visa is applied for all other sectors. Application documents for the STV and Ordinary visa are the same, however the processing time differs.

DOCUMENTS

A list will be provided upon confirmation of the visa process

WORK PERMIT

To apply for a work permit, we need to apply for authorisation from the Ministry governing the industry. To facilitate this- we must have their documents translated into Portuguese and certified by an Angolan consulate. One the authorisation is granted; the applicant needs to enter Angola on an STV and the work permit will be applied for at SME.

The processing time for the Ministry authorisation and Work permit is 15-30 days. This is only valid for Offshore workers. Other Industries need to apply for their work permit in their country of Origin and have two sets of Documents translated and Authenticated.
