Angola visa-free stay for South African travellers expected to boost tourism
As part of efforts to invigorate tourism and bolster its international ties, the Angolan government has moved to waive visa requirements for nationals from 98 countries, including South Africa.
TAAG Angola Airlines has welcomed the move and according to the airline, this policy is part of Angola's efforts to become a more accessible and an appealing destination for global travellers.
“While South Africans have enjoyed visa-free entry to Angola since December 2017, they now stand to benefit from an extended visa-free stay of up to 90 days, significantly more than the previous allowance. This change is anticipated to further stimulate the flow of tourists from South Africa to Angola,” said TAAG Angola Airlines.
The airline said that it operated 1178 flights between Angola and South Africa this year, showcasing the airline's dedication to providing convenient and streamlined travel services.
