angolian visa now impossible on route?
after repeated denials in ghana, togo, nigeria, gabon, dolisie and point noir i am wonder is the visa now impossible on route?
dolisie has just changed their policy thanks to the african trails overlanding company, not sure what they did but i arrived just as they were applying for their visas. there was a minor issue with my invitation letter so i got that sorted and the african trails mob were issued transit visas. on returning to the embassy the told me that in the last hour i was their that everyone had flown to brazzaville, and that they wont be back for 3 days.
so i travel to point noir to try, no suprise there they wont give me a visa.
back to dolisie where all of a sudden there is a new letter in the window explaining that nobody out side africa will recieve transit visas. i talk with them for ages explaining i was there for a week before the letter and that we did everything they wanted. they told me the reason they changed the policy was because of the overlanding company and my last chance was to get the immigration in luanda to ring the consulate and tell them to issue me a visa.
luandas stance? get it in your home country.
well for that to work you god damn morons you need to have an embassy in every country. i am australian and the nearest embassy is japan.
so my last chance is the drc. i am running really short on time now and am not willing to attempt the kinshasa lumbashi road alone. my other options are sell the bike in point noir for a tidy profit or fly the bike to proabably jo burg which kind of defeats the purpose qs my trip is ending in south africa
any one have any words of wisdom???
