Travel advice: for information and advice on travelling to Angola, see travel advice for Angola.
Get a visa
The British embassy can’t help with visa enquiries.
If you’re not a British national, you may need a visa to travel to the UK. Check if you need a UK visa.
If you’re a British national travelling abroad and need to apply for a visa to visit a particular country or check if you need a visa, see the entry requirements on our foreign travel advice for the country you want to visit.
For more information on visas, see UK visas and immigration.
We can issue certificates of no impediment, affirmations or affidavits of marital status and, in some circumstances, perform a marriage for British nationals. For information on getting married in Angola, see getting married abroad.
Register a birth or death
If the death occurred in Angola and you’re still in the country, contact us. If you’re in the UK and hear of the death of a relative from a third party, you should contact the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 020 7008 1500.
Read our guidance on coping with death abroad.
Ask the UK government to get a UK document legalised (certified as genuine). The UK does not require any documents to be legalised for use within the UK.
