Returning residents who test negative on disembarkation can quarantine in their own homes. Non-resident essential workers have to quarantine in a government or government-approved facility. You must spend at least 7 days in quarantine before being tested. On arrival, health officials at the airport will issue a handout with contacts to your local health centre where you can get tested. On receipt of a negative PCR test, a Titulo De Alta (ALTA) will be issued by the health centre to authorise the end of quarantine.
    Those testing positive on arrival can isolate at home if asymptomatic, but those showing symptoms may be required to go into mandatory quarantine at a government facility.

    • you should only go out if required (e.g. to work or shop) and practise social distancing
    • face masks are compulsory in all enclosed public areas including public transport, shops, and educational facilities. Immediate on-the-spot fines will be issued for non-compliance
    • higher fines will be imposed for breaching a number of restrictions
    *Accommodation: Hotels and private rentals continue to operate with some restrictions and coronavirus precautionary measures in place. You should contact your accommodation provider before booking to confirm what restrictions are in place.
    *Public places and services: The majority of shops, banks, restaurants and markets continue to operate, with some restrictions (e.g. reduced opening hours) and, since 1 November, you may be required to show proof of vaccination in order to enter. Further COVID-19 precautionary measures are in place including capacity limits for public transport and funerals. There are limits on the numbers allowed to do collective sports. Public beaches are closed (despite a brief reopening on 15 September) to help control the spread of the virus.
    If you test positive for COVID-19 in Angola before returning to your country, you must self-isolate in private accommodation or in a hotel, for 10 days. If you are visiting and staying in a hotel, you may be asked to self-isolate in your room.
