    Default Reverse Migration into Angola

    So my father may land a contract to work in Angola and wanted me to move there until it expired (six months to two years).

    At first I was against it but the more I began to research the more I began to see it as a viable option, the economy is booming and the capital looks beautiful, it seems thousands of Lusophones from Portugal, Brazil, SA, and Macau are immigrating and seems like a viable option but I want to know a western perspective of the country, like if you or anyone you know spent time there and what where the experiences like?

    My dad has been working in Angola for the past few years now. It was only suppposed to be for a short time but I guess his business really took off there and it proved more profitable for him to stay a little longer. He doesn´t like living there at all though. He wants to come home as soon as possible. We aren´t very close so he never really told me about what it´s like to live there. All I know is that there is a lot of crime, poverty and filth, but also a lot of new wealth and business opportunities.

    "The Bracari were an ancient Celtic tribe of Gallaecia, akin to the Calaicians or Gallaeci, living in the northwest of modern Portugal, in the province of Minho, between the rivers Tâmega and Cávado, around the area of the modern city of Braga.
    Appian wrote they were a very warlike people. According to him, The Bracari women warriors fought defending their town "never turning, never never showing their backs, or uttering a cry", preferring death to captivity."

    Thanks Italo! I would stay in Luanda my father would be in the hinterlands as an advisor in extraction so I'd be worried about a few things namely him being a target for looking like a mestiço (Some people in the company he is a part of was held ransom 8 years ago but he tells me things have changed); ido you know of any others who are migrating there for work?

    Also I guess you also wouldn't want to go there then?

    No problem.
    The only other people I know working there are my dad´s business partners, who are also Brazilian. He says there are many other foreigners there, not only Lusophones.
    I don´t think it´s a place I would like to visit, at least not from the impression I got from my dad.

    I have never been there, but like most African countries, Angola is notorious for their strong anti-LGBT sentiment. I definitely wouldn't recommend moving there.

    China is investing heavily in Angola, it seems a country full of opportunities.
