Visa on arrival at some road posts?

The following information is written on the homepage of the Norwegian Foreign Authorities (google translated from Norwegian):

"Visas
Norwegian citizens need a visa to stay in Mozambique. Mozambican authorities have indicated that they no longer want to buy a visa at the airport without a special invitation from the immigration authorities. The authorities have also limited opportunities to buy visas at other border crossings."

What that this mean? Is it not possible to get a visa at arrival in Maputo, but it is still possible at other places? I am going to Beira airport directly from Johannesburg in July. It is not very practical to arrange a visa in advance because the nearest Mozambican embassy is in Sweden and they are going to keep the passport for a couple of weeks.

Hi

yes the official rule is get your visa in advance. However visas are still being issued on arrival at airports and most borders to bona-fide tourists. Make sure you have booked at least your first few nights in Moz in advance and can show the booking proof when you get to Beira.

I would also first ask the airline that you are using whether they will allow you onto the plane without a visa. You may have to get your visa at the consulate in Johannesburg - same day service for about R750.

I have sent my passport to the Mozambiquan embassy in Stockholm 22.06 and still waiting. Probabely, I will receive the passport and visa in a couple of days. Some other friends are travelling tomorrow without visas, but they are former Mozambiquan citiziens and own property in Moz. We'll see what works out best.

Thanks Peik. Yes visas are usually issued at Moz airports on arrival but many airlines will not allow you to board a flight to Moz without a visa.
