Application for a Mozambique Residence Permit by Investment

An approved investment project is one way to obtain a resident permit in Mozambique. It provides a more favourable work quota than other work visas. As an investor, you can hire yourself and be within the quota. In this way, you can get a residence permit.

There aren’t any clear-cut requirements for investors, but their investment projects must be at least $500,000. The projects must also clearly benefit Mozambique and contribute towards its development. Depending on the sector and overall business plan, applications for a Mozambican residence permit by investment could be granted with less stringent procedures.

Communication between the Investment Promotion Centre (IPC) and the investor can be channelled through the IPC to make a strong case with the Department of Labour and Mozambique immigration authorities for a more flexible adjudication phase.
