Information on DRC/Angola visas - Brazzaville/Kinshasa ferry
In trying to sort out that part of my overland route, I contacted the Hippocampe hotel in Brazzaville. Here was the response I got (posted here so others can benefit):
About Angolan Visa : very difficult, nearly impossible to get in Brazzaville, Pointe Noire or Kinshasa.
Few weeks ago some travellers got it in Dolisie with the consul there but not sure it's 100% all the time. It may change at any time !
So, it's easier and better to apply in your home country.
About the DRC visa, now they also ask you to apply in your home country.
If not, they will not allow you to enter the country and they can cancel the Visa you have.
Still check on forum. Small borders are cheaper and easier. Cross the river between Brazzaville and Kinshasa is not a good idea for the moment.
If i hear about any new information i will let you know.
Does anybody know how long it takes to get Angola & DRC visas in Brussels? Is it difficult? I would like to head off in June but worried any visa I get will expire before I get there.
I'm living in Brussels, but have Canadian and UK passports.... which is my "home" country do you think?
