How to Invest in DR Congo

Whenever an investor wants to benefit from the Investment Code he has to file an application for authorization with the ANAPI who will, for their part, submit the file accompanied by an advice to the Ministry of Planning and to the Ministry of Finance after thoroughly examining the application. After submittal, a decision has to be given within thirty working days in absence of which the authorization is deemed granted. In case of refusal, the negative decision has to be motivated.

In order to facilitate the implementation of new investments in the DR Congo, a "one-stop shop", called Guichet Unique, was created within the ANAPI to provide several services to investors.
