International Arrangements: 

There is presently some ambiguity surrounding the possibility of claiming priority in Angola and we are endeavouring to establish the Registry’s position on the matter. Whilst there is no provision in the Angolan law, the Registry does in practice appear to be accepting some priority claims. Please contact us for up to date information.
