At the end of 2020, Angola hosted more than 56,000 refugees and asylum seekers. The majority of refugees came from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Mauritania. They are located in several provinces across Angola, including Luanda and Lunda Norte.

UNHCR is a key observer of the National Council for Refugees (CNR) and works with several partners on the ground to ensure that refugees and stateless people are protected and have opportunities to support themselves as well as finding long-term solutions. UNHCR has been present in Angola for over 40 years, with a Field Office in Dundo since 2017, followed by the establishment of the Lovua settlement.
