False. The US issued one in 2016.

I am replying to the questions about Republic of Congo (the country that has Brazzaville as the capital) NOT Democratic Republic of Congo (the country that has Kinshasa as the capital)

Two different countries.

DRC is often unsafe and very wild.
Rep. Congo is very safe and Brazzaville is considered an extremely nice city.

Very good information. I'd say if you were going to end up in the DRC, stay as west as possible. Closer you get to the east, the danger levels pretty much go up.
That's my plan! I will be there in about a week to ten days, depending on how long it takes to get the Angola visa
