Application for a Mozambique Student Visa

You need a student visa if you want to study in Mozambique. The student visa covers training and education at recognised educational institutions. Students in Mozambique are not allowed to enter gainful employment. Students can study in Mozambique for 12 months, which may be extended for 12 months.

Even with the extension, the Mozambican student visa doesn’t provide a path that will enable you to emigrate to Mozambique.

Contact IBN Immigration Solutions before you begin applying for your student visa. We’ll assign you a specialist in Mozambique immigration and visas to oversee your case and provide assistance when you need it.

Mozambique Student Visa Requirements, Forms & Documentation

Note: Visa requirements come in two types: General and visa-specific. Your immigration consultant will help you get all the forms you need for both types and will also help you complete the forms if you need it.

General requirements

  • A correctly completed and signed Mozambique student visa application form
  • A valid passport that has six months remaining
  • Two current passport photos
  • Proof of paid fees

Visa-specific requirements

Note: If you’re from a visa-restricted country, you need confirmation of pre-approval from the Embassy of Mozambique before submitting applications.

  • Proof of sufficient funds to support you while you’re studying in Mozambique
  • Motivation letter from you that clearly states your reason for visiting Mozambique and the duration of your stay
  • Proof of travel itinerary
  • Proof of return ticket or ticket elsewhere (outside Mozambique)
  • Proof of accommodation, including a hotel booking or the address of the place where you’ll be staying
  • Evidence of invitation and copy of your passport if visiting family or friends

Mozambique Student Visa Costs

Visa costs differ in Mozambique, depending on the type of visa, the duration of your stay, and your country of origin. This last is important because it’s necessary to determine if you are from a visa-exempt or visa-restricted country. Visa-restricted countries have fees that don’t apply to those from visa-exempt countries.

Your IBN Immigration Solutions’ consultant will give you a breakdown of the costs and other expenses that you’ll incur during the application process.

How to Apply for a Mozambique Student Visa

  1. Your student visa consultant will go through the applications process with you. You’ll work with your consultant to ensure that all the forms are correct, all the documents are accounted for, and all the fees have been paid.
  2. All the information must be compiled into an application pack that will enable us to pre-complete the application. Following this, your application pack will be sent for an in-house quality check to ensure everything is as it should be.
  3. The next step is to apply at your nearest Mozambique Embassy or Visa Facilitation Service Centre.
  4. Now you must wait for approval to come through. Your consultant can give you an idea of the turnaround time based on the current situation.
  5. Remember, the student visa doesn’t allow you to emigrate to Mozambique, but other options may enable you to extend your stay in the country.
  6. Talk to your immigration consultant about the different visas you could apply for.
