Repatriated Angolan flights to Angola start on Tuesday

Humanitarian flights to bring about 7,000 Angolans stranded in Portugal due to border closures in the country will begin next Tuesday, announced the Secretary of State for Public Health.


Franco Mufinda, who spoke in the usual daily epidemiological assessment of covid-19, also indicated that 270 Angolans from Brazil arrived in the country this Thursday, including 27 children.

The Health official did not detail how many Angolans are expected to return from Portugal on Tuesday.

The Government had announced, on Wednesday, that Portugal would be the next destination of repatriation for Angolans who want to return to their country, whose borders were closed on 20 March due to the covid-19 pandemic, but without advancing dates.

According to the Minister of State and head of the Security House of the President of the Republic, Pedro Sebastião, who is also coordinator of the multisectoral commission to combat and prevent the covid-19, about 7000 Angolans are waiting in Portugal to be repatriated.

"The next destination will be Portugal. As you know, we have a community waiting for the return of around 7000 citizens", which will represent a high effort in terms of financial and means of transport, he said.

"They are in very difficult conditions, we recognize this. I cannot imagine being three, four months away from home and without resources to survive", underlined General Pedro Sebastião.

After that, attention will be given to other centers of Angolans that are spread across Europe and the world, such as Dubai, he said at the same time.
