Visas for Mozambique

edited April 2011 in - Southern Africa
I am planning a trip to Mozambique for 7 weeks. I have heard that if you get a thirty day visa at the border you have to leave the country before coming back again. Then I came to this site and it said that extensions are easy to acquire while there. I am a bit confused, could you clarify any of this?

    I don't have any experience with Mozambique visa extensions, but here in Swaziland it is merely a case of asking and it is granted. That is... if you are a bona fide traveller. Should be similar in Mozambique I think as all these neighbouring countries are attempting to unify their policies.

    What I can suggest though is that you get your visa in Swaziland - it is significantly cheaper to do so at the Mozambique High Commission in Mbabane, than in Nelspruit, or at the border.

    if you take it to the immigration you can extend for another 30 days, to a maximum of 90 days in total!
