Mozambique: eVisa to be available by the end of October

7 October 2022

Foreign nationals who wish to visit Mozambique for tourism, business and investment will soon have their lives made easier with the entry of a new platform, eVisa, which is expected to be launched by the end of this month.

eVisa is a 100 percent Mozambican platform, built from scratch, by the Government to improve competitiveness and boost the economy and tourism industry.

The weekly paper “Domingo” reports that this was announced last Friday by the Mozambican Deputy Finance Minister, Amilcar Tivane, during a meeting held at the Foreign Affairs Ministry, seeking the implementation of the Economic Acceleration Stimulus Package.

The new platform, eVisa, allows by accessing the web page to obtain pre-approval of visas to foreigners for the categories of tourism and business (to attend meetings and conferences), as well as carry out research.

This platform is also valid for foreign nationals wishing to apply for pre-approval for visas in investment.

It consists of a user-friendly graphical inter-face where the applicant enters all the required information for a visa by filling an online form explaining the purpose of the visit.

It is also a channel for submitting all the required documentation for the issuance of visas, including a copy of the passport, air ticket and proof of accommodation by uploading digital files.

Once completed the information and required documentation is submitted to the National Migration Service (SENAMI) where it is processed. Within five days the applicant is informed about the status approval or disapproval, through the same digital platform.

When the request is approved, the applicant receives a digital pre-authorization travel document which should be presented to the SENAMI officer at the point of entry in Mozambique.

After payment of the fee at the border post, SENAMI proceeds to issue the visa allowing entry into the country.
