How TecEx Can Help You Import into Angola

Angola is a fossil-fuel-rich nation with much of its trade centered around its rich crude oil and petroleum assets. Unfortunately, the wealth brought in by this trade has not translated into a technologically developed nation. However, the regions’ trailing Tech industry does mean opportunities in the ICT space are virtually boundless, resulting in lush investor prospects. And since 70% of the population is under 24, the demand for updated technology is massive as the population look to their more advanced Namibian neighbors to the South.

When it comes to importing into Angola, certain restrictions and value thresholds are applied. For larger shipments, permits are required, while permission documents are necessary for certain electronic goods and cables. The required licenses can be laborious and time-intensive due to bureaucratic inefficiency, corruption, and poor infrastructure. These have been worsened in recent years by the long-lasting effects of the global health crisis, and their long civil war legacy. It is therefore beneficial to enlist the help of those with experience in the region to help streamline the import process.
