Dear valued partners and friends travellers,
We all share the impact of the global outbreak of COVID-19 and hope that the worldwide spread of the disease can very soon be brought under control.
On October 30th 2020, President Filipe Nyusi announced the resumption of tourism visa issuing and the end of the need for quarantine for people entering the country with a negative coronavirus test or a Covid vaccination.
In March 2023, Mozambique’s government has withdrawn the requirement for a vaccination certificate and a negative test for Covid-19 for foreigners seeking to enter the country as part of the easing of restrictions imposed by the pandemic and to boost tourism.
The cabinet spokesman, Filimão Suaze, cited by daily newspaper Notícias, said that a rapid test for Covid-19 at the entrance to the country would also no longer be required for travellers who do not present a vaccination certificate.
The easing of restrictions imposed by the pandemic is an international trend and aims to boost tourism in Southern Africa.
