Kinshasa is a city with modern shops and restaurants, but it is known above all as the birthplace of African music.
It is one of Africa’s biggest cities and is the administrative, economic and cultural centre of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is a cheap city with a very lively nightlife. Kinshasa has suffered greatly from turbulent changes in the past few years. A visit is certainly worthwhile in order to experience the atmosphere of this city.
A list of sights would fail to do justice to Kinshasa. You must certainly sample the atmosphere of this big African city. Living in Kinshasa is a special experience, since the city is surrounded by countryside full of tropical rainforest and endangered species of animals.
Visa to the Democratic Republic of Congo
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Francophonie of the Democratic Republic of Congo wishes to inform the Congolese community living in Belgium as well as the Belgians and European citizens residing in Belgium that for entry visa for the Democratic Republic of Congo, one is free to address him/herself either to the Chancellery Embassy of the Democratic Republic of Congo in Brussels, or at the General Consulate of the Democratic Republic of Congo in Antwerp. Both are equally empowered for the issuance of these visas.
