The U.S State Department rates Ghana for Crime as CRITICAL. The country’s worsening economic situation and associated criminality remain a serious threat to safety and security in Angola.
According to official police statistics, crime increased in 2016. The Embassy also observed an increase in crime in Luanda, with a significant increase in the category of kidnapping for ransom. The primary criminal threat to the expatriate community in Luanda remains robbery. Assaults and carjackings, sometimes escalating to homicide, have been recorded throughout Luanda. Violence is more common after dark, though care should be taken at all times to avoid becoming a victim. Travel in groups when possible and try to include at least one person capable of communicating in Portuguese. (OSAC Security Report)
