In theory no;) you dont need to go through the vaccination/passport control in the arrival hall. But still, I would recommend to contact the Angolan embassy in Canada to be on the safe side. With the upcoming election this year, things can change quickly.Edited: 8:08 am, January 24, 2017
Are you also doing transit only? Then you should be fine without it (go to the left in the arrival hall and follow the transfer-signs and dont go to the left where everybody is queing). But if you are leaving transit area, you definitely need it. When you enter the arrival hall, the first thing you need to show is the vaccination certificate, even before the passport.
Hello Joshua and others,
could you please share you experience from the transit? I will be on the same flight soon and am wondering whether: a) I need a transit visa (two of us on EU and U.S. passports respectively) and b) whether I need to have the yellow fever vaccination certificate for the transit.
many thanks in advance!
You do not need a visa nor a yellow fever certificate. I just recently transit myself. When you exit the bus at international arrivals and enter the hall, go immediatly to the left and follow the transfer sign, which takes you into the international departure area. You will probably already get the onward boarding pass at your first departure point, if not, ask the guy to whom you show your passport when passing from the arrival to the departure hall.

As Happy H said, no need of a transit visa or a yellow fever certificate. Otherwise, follow his/her instructions and you will be fine.
thanks guys, I really appreciate it. will follow your airport instructions to the letter :)
