Hello Mike! It's me again, Farah from Egypt. I was wondering if I could get a South Africa visa (multiple entry) for a month or so from the embassy in Maputo? I won't have airplane tickets, only bus tickets and hotel booking.

Thank you!

Hi again Farah

I am assuming that you travel on an Egyptian passport. If yes then for a visit of 30 days or less you do not need a visa in advance. See: www.home-affairs.gov.za/index.php/countr...exempt-from-sa-visas

keep in touch

Mike

Thank you for your reply Mike! However, this is only the case for diplomatic passport holders. As Egyptians we're required to get a visa in advance at the embassy, it's issued for free but they need plane tickets to issue it. And I won't be traveling from Cairo, so I can't provide that!

So is it possible to get one from Maputo? I will be in Maputo starting the 25th of July, and I need the SA Visa before the 10th of August.

Thanks again!

Hi Farah

yes, I see now that that is the case - sorry for that. I live in Johannesburg, but have asked a friend in Maputo to follow up on your question. Will let you know as soon as I have any information.

Hi Farah

I got a reply from the SA High Commission in Maputo. Not good news, but now you know what to do:

Good Day,

Visas are only issued to foreigners who hold permanent residence in Mozambique.

Your friend must apply for her visa in her country of residence prior to travelling to Maputo.

Regards

Mike
