Moving your employees to Republic of Congo

The Republic of Congo is a country located in Central Africa. It has a population of approximately 5 million people and a land area of 342,000 square kilometers. The country’s economy is heavily dependent on the oil and gas industry, which accounts for over 70% of its exports.

The political situation in the Republic of Congo is relatively stable, with the government maintaining a strong grip on power. French is the official language of the country, but other languages spoken include Lingala, Kikongo, and Tshiluba.

International businesses may want to expand their operations to the Republic of Congo due to its rich natural resources, favorable business environment, and strategic location in Central Africa. The country has implemented a series of reforms to attract foreign investment, including the creation of special economic zones and the simplification of administrative procedures.

Key immigration facts about Republic of Congo

If you’re considering moving your employees or business to the Republic of Congo, it’s important to understand the country’s immigration requirements. Foreigners who have expired visas, who want to enter the country for the first time, or who have visas that were canceled when they left the country, must apply for 15-day visas at a Congolese embassy or consulate before entering the Republic of Congo. During this 15-day period, the foreigner can apply for a three-month visa.

To obtain a three-month visa, an applicant must submit the following documents: a receipt for the temporary work permit, a valid passport, four identity pictures, and an employer testimony. A nonresident also needs a temporary work permit to work legally in the Republic of Congo. 

To obtain a temporary work permit, the applicant must submit the following documents: a valid passport, two identity pictures, a copy of the entry visa, an information form, and a job analysis. For workers, an attestation of employment or an acknowledgement of receipt of the request for employment must be added to the permit application file.

Income Tax in Republic of Congo

The Republic of Congo taxes its residents on their worldwide income and taxes non-residents on their Congolese income. An individual domiciled in the Republic of Congo, whether of Congolese or foreign nationality, is liable for Personal Income Tax (PIT) on one’s worldwide income. Tax treaties may exempt specific types of foreign-source income from Congolese PIT, but the exempt income is still taken into account in determining the effective rate of Congolese tax payable on the individual’s taxable income. Tax is also levied on some capital gains.

An individual who is not domiciled in the Republic of Congo is liable for Congolese tax only on income from Congolese sources (including income attributed to the Republic of Congo by a tax treaty) and on capital gains from the disposal of certain assets. PIT rates are fixed at the end of the year to which they relate. The rates are applied progressively in that they increase with the taxpayer’s taxable income. Generally, the PIT rates are the same for domiciled and non-domiciled individuals. However, a tax rate of 20% is imposed on non-commercial income of a non-domiciled individual.

A tax rate of 20% is also imposed on salaries for duties performed in the Republic of Congo by foreign employees seconded to work in the Republic of Congo for limited periods. As a result, it’s important to consider the tax implications of relocating employees to the Republic of Congo.
