A Angola visa is an official government document that temporarily authorizes you to be in the country.  Many countries require a visa to gain entry.  The Angola visa is in the form of a stamp/sticker IN the passport and is obtained from a Angola Embassy in Washington DC or consulates around the country.  We have staff spread around the country to hand carry your application for you and then overnight the passport back when it is completed.
