Hi there, you will need more than a hotel res to get an Angolan visa (which are very difficult to get these days..).

With regards to the visa letter, unfortunately we (Eco Tur) are only authorised to issue visa invitation letters to genuine bona fide and paid up tourism customers of ours and we are not prepared to risk contravening these guidelines.

As a heads up, you may, or may not be aware that Luanda is in fact officially THE most expensive place in the WORLD (not even just in Africa...!) , so the costs are high (see the following recent links)-

I am a filmmaker, and our company has been asked to create a production which requires filming in and around Luanda. I have an American passport, and the other 3 members of my crew have South African ones. I do not have confirmed dates for our travel right now, but it sounds like it can be difficult to get visas... can you advise me please? I am based in Johannesburg RSA.

thanks very much
