Health You will need to do some vaccinations before your arrival for diseases such as: Hepatitis A, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Typhoid and Yellow fever. Tap water is not safe for foreigners who are not used to drink it; so you should boil or sterilize some water to brush your teeth, make ice and drink. As for the water, milk should be boiled too. Only eat well-cooked meat, fish and vegetables.
Concerning your insurance, we recommend you to pay for a full health insurance that would include medical evacuation insurance. There are some hospital facilities in the main towns but, at the moment, adequate medical facilities are virtually non-existent. However, there are some good private clinics in Luanda. Medical treatment is free although often inadequate, and visitors should travel with their own supply of remedies for simple ailments such as stomach upsets, as pharmaceutical supplies are usually extremely difficult to obtain.

Money Credit cards are not generally accepted. American Express, Diners Club and Visa enjoy limited acceptance. Some larger hotels and restaurants in Luanda have started taking credit cards. Traveler cheques are accepted. All imported currency should be declared on arrival. The import of currency is limited to AOA 15,000. The import of foreign currency is unlimited. The export of foreign currency is limited to US$ 5,000. It is illegal to attempt to carry local currency out of Armenia.

Transportation Public transports are very common; maybe taking a cab would be safer and avoid you getting lost.

There are several mobile phone companies that operate in the country, it will be easier for you to get a phone adapted to local network, rather than keeping your contract there.
