Preparing to do business in Angola

Doing business in Angola is not straightforward. The complexity and bureaucratic nature of the business environment requires careful guidance for first-time business visitors and companies wishing to do business here. As a result, engaging the services of credible organisations or local contacts who have sound reliable market knowledge, experience and exposure to access accurate up-to-date information is essential for those who are serious about doing business in Angola. This approach can have substantial benefits and can significantly reduce market entry challenges, imparting valuable insight about on-the-ground requirements and business operations.

If UK companies wish to explore the approach outlined above, UKTI Angola is aware of a number of emerging (credible and reliable) sources which are able to assist organisations with targeted market entry information, guidance and other related services. UKTI Angola can provide further details upon request.

UKTI’s team in Angola can provide a range of services to British-based companies wishing to grow their business in the Angolan market. Their services include the provision of market information, validated lists of agents/potential partners, key market players or potential customers, establishing the interest of such contacts in working with your company, and arranging appointments. In addition, they can also organise events for you to meet contacts or promote your company and your products/services.

Note: it is illegal to transact in dollars, and it is illegal for any provider of goods or services to decline to accept payment in Kzs.

You can commission a UKTI Overseas Market Introduction Service (OMIS) to assist your company to enter or expand your business in Angola. Under this service, the British Embassy’s Trade & Investment Advisers, who have wide local experience and knowledge, can identify business partners and provide the support and advice most relevant to your company's specific needs in the market.

To find out more about commissioning work, please contact your local UKTI office. See:
