Mozambique: huge increase in visa fees

Jump to last reply

I saw this posted on the Mozguide website and thought it might be of use to anyone planning a trip to Mozambique.



Huge increase in Visa fees
Date 10/3/2006
Source MozGuide


Just got off the phone to the Moz Consulate in Johannesburg and
unfortunately I have to confirm that indeed Mozambique has upped it's visa
charges astronomically. Note however that this does not apply to SA
citizens who still do not need a visa to enter Moz. The Lady (Isobel)
that I chatted to was very apologetic and agreed that this would have a
very detrimental effect on tourism, and she suggested that the Tourism
Ministry was probably not consulted. She also assumed that the charges
would also apply to visitors applying for visas at borders and airports.
Man, this is a big blow for us budget travellers, and also for the more
well-heeled, and if these charges remain effective then I must predict
that many lodges and backpackers in Moz will have to close. Investment
will also be very adversely affected.

I am now lobbying for this ridiculous and short-sighted turn of events to
be reconsidered urgently.

FYI some of the new charges or 30 day single entry tourist visa are:
UK and US citizens: R750
Australians: R370.

So what you now pay is equal to what Mozambicans must pay to visit your
country, fair perhaps but idiotic if you consider which country needs who
to visit and spend their valuable foreign currency most.
