Travel and holidays to Mozambique just keeps getting easier. The government of Mozambique has advised that all tourists can now get dual entry Mozambique visas at all points of entry and these will be valid for 30 days. All borders have been equipped with modern equipment that can issue biometric visas immediately.
Affordable and Convenient
The visa will cost $50 USD. Border visas are open to all visitors irrespective of whether there is Mozambican representation in their home country or not – because High Commissions and Consulates will no longer be issuing 30-day tourist visas as of this announcement.
The Mozambican government has doubled the cost of entry visas with immediate effect under a decree jointly signed by Economy and Finance Minister, Adriano Maleiane, and Interior Minister, Basilio Monteiro.
All single-entry visas applied for in foreign travellers’ countries of origin will be affected by the fee increases.
At the current exchange rate, the cost of single-entry visas valid for 30 days jumps from US$50 to US$102, while a visa valid for between 31 and 60 days will now cost US$203.
Visas valid for between 61 and 90 days now cost US$305.
Border visas – which can be obtained on entry to Mozambique by land, sea or air – remain unaffected,
A total of 44 Mozambique borders will now be issuing biometric visas to visitors with the remaining 14, in many of the least-crossed land borders, to be able to issue them soon. It seems that 26 border posts were already issuing the visas since 2005 but there was plenty of confusion here about who was eligible or not and now all visitors from other countries can safely enter Mozambique for 30 days with an instant visa.
South Africans Still Don’t need a Visa
South African travelers must have a valid passport (validity at least 30 days after the intended return date) with two clean pages in the passport when they visit Mozambique but they do not require a visa for a stay of up to 30 days.
Excitement Mounts in Preparation for Holiday Seasons
