The Angolan Consulate in London only accepts applications on Mondays and Tuesdays and collections are only on Thursdays and Fridays.
The visa will be issued after Government approval in Luanda which can take up to 2 months.
Applicants wishing to withdraw a passport once lodged should be aware that they may face delays of up to 1 month. We recommend that holders of UK passports apply for a 2nd passport to allow for travel elsewhere in the meantime.
The Consular Services will not be responsible for the loss of your travel arrangements should the consultation takes longer than expected. Most visas do not require the purchase of an airline ticket to acquire a visa but only a reservation or itinerary.

A visa is an officially approved document issued by authorised bodies for the government, in accordance with the laws of the country, to foreign citizens applying to enter, leave or transit through the country. In line with international law and practice, any sovereign state is entitled to make its own decisions as to whether to allow a foreign citizen to enter or leave its borders, and to issue or refuse to issue a visa, or to revoke an issued visa according to its own laws.
Based on these laws and regulations, Embassy Consular officials may decide on the type of visa, number of entries, validity period and duration of stay, and may also refuse a visa application or revoke an issued visa.
All visa fees once paid are non-refundable irrespective of the outcome of the visa application and duration granted
