For a positive integer $\ell,$ $\overline{A}_{\ell}(n)$ denotes the number of overpartitions of $n$ into parts not divisible by $\ell.$ In this article, we find certain Ramanujan-type congruences for $\overline{A}_{ r \ell}(n),$ when $r\in\{8, 9\}$ and we deduce infinite families of congruences for them. Furthermore, we also obtain Ramanujan-type congruences for $\overline{A}_{ 13}(n)$ by using an algorithm developed by Radu and Sellers \cite{Radu2011}.
