Mozambique cancels requirement for vaccination certificate, Covid-19 test for travelers entering the country

The Mozambican government has withdrawn the requirement for a vaccination certificate and a negative Covid-19 test from foreigners wishing to enter the country, as part of easing the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and boosting tourism.

The spokesman for the Council of Ministers of Mozambique, Filimão Suaze, quoted on Wednesday by daily newspaper Notícias, said that the rapid test for Covid-19 at the entrance into the country will also no longer be required for travellers who do not present the vaccination certificate.

The isolation imposed on people who test positive for Covid-19 will also be lifted, Suaze added. People who enter the country with symptoms of Covid-19 are also no longer required to be tested.

“The easing of restrictions imposed by the pandemic is an international trend and aims to boost tourism”, said the spokesman for the Mozambican Council of Ministers.
