Travel to Mozambique just keeps getting better and easier. The Mozambique government has announced on 2 March 2017 that all visitors to the country can now get dual entry visas at at almost all entry border posts that will last 30 days. At last the borders have been equipped with up-to-date facilities that can issue biometric visas for all.
Affordable and Convenient
The new 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.
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 travellers 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
