A short update from our legal desk.

8 July 2020

From 30 June 2020, flights to and from Angola have been allowed, however, each passenger is required to have a COVID test, which must be conducted no more than 8 days before boarding the plane.  

Furthermore, mandatory quarantine of 14 days will apply to all passengers but this may be reduced to 7 days if the passenger takes a further test in a certified medical facility in Angola and the results remain negative. In this regard, the Angolan Health Ministry has advised that the quarantine and tests at quarantine centres will be without costs to the passengers, subject to the available capacity. In the event that there is no means/capacity, passengers will have to self-quarantine in the hotels selected by the Health Ministry and the associated costs shall be borne the passenger, who will be notified before the flight.  

Finally, the immigration authorities and the Ministries have returned to their regular activity, although the Angolan Embassies and Consulates throughout the world have not necessarily done so (e.g. RSA).
