Scheduled to start operating on September 30, this platform will enable agents in the tourism sector to issue a new license card through the website servicos.minfin.gov.ao, within a time frame of no more than 15 days.
Cited by Angop, Zaira de Assunção considered that the platform – which has been tested for two months – will simplify the speed of procedures, progress and monitoring by the operator without having to travel from one province to another.
He also clarified that, in an initial phase, operators away from the capital will only have to go to Luanda to issue the license card.
He also said that it will be possible to register the licensing process from any part of the country, as long as people have the documents requested on the platform: "People will register their licensing process from anywhere in the country , provided that you can attach all the documentation required for this purpose".
Until then, permits were dealt with at the "central level". In other words, operators who did not live in Luanda had to go to the capital with the documents necessary for the licensing of the business, in a process that could take months depending on where the business was located.
However, under the decentralization of competences decree, some enterprises (such as one-star hotels, among others) were devolved to municipal administrations, writes Angop.
According to Angop, this launch took place within the scope of the celebrations of the World Tourism Day, which will take place next week, on 27 September.
