The Council of Ministers has approved a decree granting visa exemption to 28 countries for tourism and business purposes in Mozambique. The exemption is applicable to visitors carrying ordinary passports and allows for a stay of up to 30 days, which can be extended for an additional 60 days.
Travelers are required to register on a pre-screening platform at least 48 hours before their travel and pay a processing fee.
Mozambique Going from Strength to Strength
This announcement follows the launch of a platform in December last year that enabled visitors to apply for an electronic pre-authorisation to travel into the country. The introduction of the Mozambican e-Visa has reportedly led to an increase of over 30% in the number of travelers visiting the country compared to the previous year.
The eVisa platform is committed to responding to applications within five days, with an average response time of 24 hours, and any issues reported are usually due to users not uploading the required documentation.
Reasons for Exemption
The visa exemption for 28 countries is a part of the Economic Acceleration Measures Package (PAE) proposed by Mozambican President Nyusi in August 2022, which contains measures aimed at making the country more accessible and competitive.
