The tourist visa is one of the more important parts of travelling but yet also one that’s easily forgotten.

Mozambique is taking away the stress of applying and waiting for a visa from visitors by introducing a new visa on arrival system.

The system is available to all international tourists for a US$50 charge and gives entry to the Southeast African country for up to 30 days.


Arno Delport from African specialists, Acacia Africa, welcomed the simplified entry process, saying it will boost the country’s popularity among travellers wanting to head overland during the summer.

“With the 30-day tourist visa now being available at borders for all visitors, we expect Mozambique to be an even more enticing destination for travellers in search of world class diving on a budget.”

Mozambique is well-known among Africa enthusiasts for its unique culture, a mix of African and Portuguese, as well as its diverse locations, which includes everything from Tofo, the laid-back hippy resort town, to Vilanculos, the diving haven.

According to Delport, one of the most popular itineraries is the 14 day Mozambique & Zimbabwe Explorer camping overland featuring a dhow sailing trip to the archipelago’s third largest island, Magaruque Island and snorkelling, swimming or hiking to the ruins of a 19th century fort.
