Multiple Entry Visa allows more than one entry. The maximum length of stay for each entry is 30 days. Visas must be used within three months from the emission date, not from the entry date in Mozambique.  

POSTAL APPLICATIONS

ATTENTION

Due to the recent and alarming cases of violation/loss of postal applications, including passports, and in order to ensure the safety of applicants, as of 10 July 2017, the Consular Section of the Mozambique High Commission in London will only post out passports with processed Visas if, in addition to the full compliance with Visa requirements, the following procedures/rules are observed:

  • Use only of registered postal services/companies, including: (i) a complete address and name for the return of the passport; (ii) an official envelope from a registered postal service; (ii) an official tracking number from a registered postal service.

The use of official envelopes and tracking numbers is, therefore, designed to prevent or minimise the growing mail violations while allowing for an easier detection of signs of violation and tracking thereof.

Postal applications that do not follow the above procedures/rules will no longer be processed.

Applications received at the Consular Section with clear signs of having been violated will be returned to the registered postal service.

The Consular Section is not liable for the loss, delay or violation of the postal applications while en route to and from the High Commission.
