How to Get a Work Visa for Mozambique

Mozambique Work Visa

Mozambique Work Visa

Interested in coming to Mozambique to work?  The first hurdle for you will be securing a job in Mozambique. The second hurdle will be doing the overly bureaucratic work permit process.

The Mozambique Work Visa (a.k.a. Mozambique Work Permit) is for foreigners entering Mozambique to work.  The visa is valid for 30 days, extendable to 60 days.  

If you are looking to stay in Mozambique for longer than 60 days, you are going to need a Mozambique Residence Permit.  Follow this link here for more information.

You can apply for this visa through your nearest consulate (Click here to see General Information and Eligibility for Mozambique).

(Go to my Mozambique visa page for information on other types of visas for Mozambique.)

You are going to need the usual documents:

  • Original passport, valid for at least 6 months from date of submission and have at least 1 blank page for a visa stamp (amendment pages are not acceptable).
  • One (1) visa application form.
  • Two (2) passport-sized photographs
  • A copy of your employment contract authorized by the competent authorities (e.g. Ministry of Labor)
  • Criminal Record Certificate

Call up your consulate to get the latest fees.
