MOZAMBIQUE – Some Consulates Now Requesting Pre-Approval of Visa Applications
Some embassies and consulates of Mozambique in various countries have recently started to request pre-approval of entry visa applications from the Mozambique Immigration Service.
The pre-approval process consists of submitting the visa application documents to the Immigration Service, which may then issue a pre-approval notice to the Mozambique embassy or consulate abroad. This extra step may delay the visa application for up to three weeks if required.
The new pre-approval requirement differs from country to country: A consulate may require no pre-approval, or pre-approval for certain visa types, or for all visa types.
- In case of an entry visa application to Mozambique, consult the diplomatic mission where the application will be made, to determine whether this pre-approval requirement is in place.
