DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED AND A LIST OF EMBASSY / CONSULATE DETAILS
Do not forget your passport!
Should you be traveling with a South African Passport you DO NOT NEED A VISA.
But there are still two important factors to keep in mind.
1. Your passport needs to be valid for MORE THAN 6 MONTHS after date of entry into Mozambique.
2. There needs to be a MINIMUM of 2 BLANK PAGES is your passport, if not, it is too full.
If you are travelling with a NON-SOUTH AFRICAN PASSPORT you DO REQUIRE A VISA, which document can ONLY BE PRE-APPLIED for. The process is rather quick, but don’t wait too long. Should you require a visa, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org providing me with your FULL NAME AND SURNAME as it appears in your passport, together with your PASSPORT NUMBER. I will than send you (via e-mail) a Letter of Invitation, which is to be taken with to the Embassy. The only time a VISA can be issued at the BORDER POST, is when you come from a country where they have NO MOZAMBICAN EMBASSY. If you live in a country that has an Embassy or Consulate they WILL NOT issue you a visa at the border post.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR PASSPORT WAS STAMPED (DOUBLE CHECK THIS YOURSELF) IT NEEDS TO FIRST BE STAMPED BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN AUTHORITIES (BUILDING ON THE LEFT), THEN YOU GO THROUGH THE BORDER POST, AND WALK TO THE BUILDING ON THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE (WHITE TEMPORARY / PARK HOME OFFICE UNITS) THERE YOU MAKE SURE TO DOUBLE CHECK THAT YOUR PASSPORT HAS BEEN STAMPED BY THE MOZAMBIQUE OFFICIALS. DOUBLE CHECKING THAT IT HAS IN FACT BEEN DONE STAYS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

HOW TO BOOK A BORDER TRANSFER
Those without 4X4’s, bakkies or any four-wheel drive vehicle, must make use of a border transfer to get to Ponta Malongane. The resort is situated 14km from the border post. Here is the Mozambique Mobile Number of Thembi, she is the Front of House lady at the resort. You simply send her a WHATSAPP message (well in advance) – it is important that you tell her your name, your current location (then she knows how far away you are approximately) and for how many people you would require a Border Transfer. She will respond via WHATSAPP to you. Should you have problems a local mobile number will be posted a couple of days prior to the festival on Facebook the event page and the Mozamboogy group, where you could reach one of the organizers. It is easiest to just send WHATSAPP messages or email us when we are there. There is NO SOUTH AFRICAN cellphone reception –
and roaming is not a good idea.
Thembi’s number: 00258 84 039 3038
Please note it is very important that you pay the driver of the vehicle in cash (South African Rand) when you get into the car. Please do not pay the drivers for the return trip – not in advance, it is not advisable. It is furthermore very important that you double check that all your luggage was loaded in to the vehicle when the pick you up and the same goes for the point of drop off. Your belongings stay your responsibility.
They are not too strict with regards to luggage restrictions (within reason).
It costs approximately R120 per person per one-way trip for a Border Transfer. (keep this in mind for your return trip).
