Hello Lalit and welcome to

Please note that a new thread has been created as from your post on the Luanda forum to help  you get interactions.

I invite you to check out threads in our Cost of living in Luanda section of the forum to gather some infos.

Does your FOOD part include B/f, Lunch, Tea, Dinner? Ask for free laundry also and hopefully the accommodation is fully furnished and equipped? Does the package also include transport? If so, then even USD 2,900 per month is not bad, though you should ask for USD 4,500 since you are being appointed as a Manager.
Remember, ANGOLA is the COSTLIEST COUNTY in the WORLD. All clothes, undergarments, foot-wear, even socks and handkerchiefs should be taken by you from India. The only thing available at reasonable price in Angola is liquor. Rest all things may be priced around 4-10 times costlier than in India.

My driver get that with overtime back 2011!

Well, that salary is acceptable only if all your basic expenses are taken care off. It will also depend on the standards of living you intent to have once in Angola, because living in Angola following western life style standards is very costly but you can always find alternatives.

BTW: make sure you get transportation as part of the deal.

Hi Lalit,

These salary is not good for work in Luanda. Ask for more and believe me they will pay you more.

Good luck,

Hi Lalit,

I would advise you to negociate anything between 3500-4500 its ok, provided all basic needs are looked after.

If possible always tray get as much information as possible from the company  (size, revenue, market share etc) plus your job description so that you might get a fair rate.

LUANDA is very expencive due to excessive imports, make sure your basic needs are looked after specially FD and ACC.

best regards
