HEALTH ALERT: U.S. Embassy, Luanda

Location:  Angola (countrywide)

Event:  The Angolan Ministry of Health has confirmed 4 cases of COVID-19 in Angola.

The Department of State has issued a Global Level 4 Health Advisory for COVID-19.  We recognize this has been a challenging period for many of our fellow Americans, particularly those of you seeking to depart Angola as commercial flights have been cancelled or suspended.

The U.S. Embassy in Luanda is actively pursuing options to return U.S. citizens from Angola to the United States.  If flights become available, it will be with very little advance notice.  It is possible that you would be notified of space on a flight the day before or the same day of the flight.  As such, we are asking you to let us know now if you are interested in such a flight.  Please fill out this repatriation form immediately for each individual who would be interested in a repatriation flight.  If you have already filled out this form, there is no need to fill it out again.

If you complete the above form, we will contact you immediately when a repatriation flight with available seats is scheduled and provide you with logistical information, including its cost per seat.  It is important to note that these seats are traditionally offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to U.S. citizens and, space permitting, for qualifying non-citizen dependents.  Private U.S. citizens seeking to depart are required to sign a promissory note and will be billed at a later date for the cost of the flight.

Interested parties should verify that their passports and other documentation are current and valid for at least six months from today’s date.  For emergency American Citizen Services, including emergency passports, please visit our website for additional information at
