What To Do If Your Mozambique Visa is Refused
Individuals routinely ask us how we can “promise” the issuance of a visa. Because all final decisions are made by embassies, there is no way to obtain a 100 percent guarantee. Everything you can do is ensure that your application is as strong as possible. Please get in touch with us if your visa application has been rejected.
You have the right to contest this verdict. The embassy of the Member State that opted to deny the visa distributes a standard form to notify the applicant of the decision to deny a Schengen visa and the reasons for the refusal.
At any of the immigration offices that are located in all provincial capitals, the visa can be renewed twice for an additional 30 days, for a total of 90 days. In contrast, acquiring a 90-day multiple-entry visa in advance may necessitate a border crossing every 30 days.
To enter the Republic of Mozambique, a visa is not required for nationals of the SADC member states. This exception permits foreign nationals to remain in the country for a 90-day period that cannot be extended or exceeded.
The short-term tourist visa for Mozambique will become a joint-tourist business visa with a longer duration of stay. The visa validity will be extended from 30 to 90 days.
