IMMIGRATION

The work permit process on Mozambique is a complex process. There are 3 categories for Work Permit- an Oil and Gas Permit- Valid for any 6 months of the year, a Quota Work Permit- this is valid for 1 year and an out of Quota Permit valid for one year only. The applicant also needs to apply for a DIRE- Residence Permit.

A quota work permit is issued to a company that has an expat Quota- it is one Expat for every 10 Locals working there. If the company does not have a Quota available, they would have to apply for an out of Quota permit which can take up to 6 months A business visa issued for 3 months, but the applicant can only stay for 30 days at a time. Every 30 Days, they would have to border hop and reenter Mozambique.
