Chinese people in Angola are a recent group of residents, having arrived in Angola in the past few decades.

Thousands of Chinese construction workers, engineers, planners, and support staff that includes doctors and cooks reside in Angola, making the construction sector a large magnet for Chinese.[2] According to an April 2012 statement by Freitas Neto of Angola's Office of Migration and Foreigners, 258,920 Chinese reside in Angola, the vast majority (258,391) on work visas.[1]
