The good news that we have all been waiting for: it's now official - tourism visas for Mozambique can now be obtained on arrival at the border post.

A Government issued notice has confirmed that citizens from countries that require a tourism visa to enter Mozambique will be able to obtain one on arrival at 44 border posts. Thiese include Maputo, Vilanculos, Inhambane, Beira, Pemba and Nampula airports and the Ponto D'ouro border post (for White Pearl). This ew regulation is already in effect.
