General information


All visitors, except South Africans and Malawians, require visas in order to travel to Mozambique, and it is better to have it all ready before you get to the border gate – you can get a visa there, but it is not guaranteed; visas are issued at either the Mozambiquan embassy, high commission or consulate. You can get single entry visas or multiple entries. An official Mozambique visa is a green sticker which is barcoded, it will be stamped in your passport. The charges for visas varies, you will pay whatever it costs for a Mozambican to travel to your country.

A single-entry tourist visa is valid for 60 days from issue date, and you can enter the country for a maximum stay of 30 days.

Same-day visas cost $13 (R85), next- day visas $10 (R65). Visas are also available at borders for $25 (R71), but those issued at Ponta do Ouro and other small border posts can only be used to exit from that border post again.
