Presidential Decree 79/17, of 24 April, has amended Presidential Decree 43/17, of 6 March, which sets out the rules applicable to the hiring of non-resident foreign workers (expats) in Angola.

According to the amended rules, it is now clear that, under Presidential Decree 43/17, payments to expats can be made in foreign currency and that the provisions contained therein only applies to employment contracts, thus excluding service providers or other contractual relationships.
