16 year old travelling alone

Can a 16 year old British citizen enter Angola on her own, has family there but is she allowed to obtain a visa and fly there being under 18?

Thank You

Hi, check here: www.angola.org.uk/visas/visa_ordinary.html at the bottom of the page is a section for minors travelling alone:


01 - Fully completed application form. Fill online, print. Date and signature of parent or tutor on page 3 are mandatory. Applications filled in by hand will not be accepted.

02 - Passport with 6 months validity and 2 blank pages;

03 - One (1) recent colour passport photograph (glue to the application form). Passport photo guidance;

04 - Letter from Educational Institution (any letter from school with the child's name issued in );

05 - Full Birth certificate (colour photocopy);

06 - Medical Centre Card (GP) of the minor;

07 - Itinerary (online, airline or travel agent pre-booking) of the accompanying adult;

08 - Photocopy of passports of both parents or Tutors;

09 - If travelling without one or both parents/guardians a Travel Authorisation from the non-accompanying parent, in Portuguese, is required. Angolan citizens registered with the Embassy of Angola must request the travel authorisation at the Consular Section (Fee: £10.00). Non-Angolan parent/guardian must issue a travel authorisation in Portuguese or translated to pportugueses, authenticated by a public notary.

Applicants are advised to keep a photocopy of the receipt for future reference.
