Mozambique Visa

All U.S. citizens need a Mozambique visa for entry into the country. The U.S. Department of State recommends obtaining your travel visa before you arrive in Mozambique to prevent unexpected delays.

However, a single entry visa can be purchased on arrival for $82. To secure your visa upon arriving in Mozambique, you must present your passport with at least six months validity remaining.

It is very important that you leave Mozambique before your visa expires. If you remain in country after the expiration date on your visa expires, you will be fined $33 for every day you overstay your visa.


Below is a list of items that may be required when applying for a visa to Mozambique. Visa requirements vary based on the type of visa for which you are applying and can change without notice.

Consular officials have the right to request additional information from anyone applying for a Mozambique visa. For the most up to date visa requirements, visit the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Mozambique.
