COVID-19 Global Travel Guidance
Currently, many countries are asking travellers to provide documentation to prove they have been tested and do not have the COVID-19 Infection. The tests are generally required to be conducted within the 48 – 120 hours prior to fight departure.
We strongly advise that you check with your airline and the government authorities of the country you are visiting, that they do accept the certificate upon entry as this is the case for most countries. It is your responsibility to check the requirements of the airline and country that you are visiting before you contact us.
Most of the countries require a COVID-19 PCR Antigen Test, which is basically a swab of the throat and nose (just as is done in the NHS). However, in some countries travellers are being asked to have a COVID-19 PCR Antibody Test which requires a blood sample be taken and sent to a laboratory to be checked.
Quarantine / Self Isolation
Many countries have become strict about the way they let people visit and leave, with most requiring people to quarantine for 7-14 days, in self/institutional isolation.
Some countries would waive the quarantine/isolation requirement if proof of a Negative PCR test is provided.

Entry and Exit Requirements
The Ministry of Health (MISAU) has implemented screening at airports and other points of entry scanning the temperatures of all travelers. Travelers will be required to provide proof of negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-based COVID-19 test results administered in their country of origin within 72 hours of departure.
All arrivals to Mozambique, regardless of citizenship, will be on a mandated 10-day self-quarantine (see quarantine information below).
Following the 10-day self-quarantine, travelers will be required to pass a second PCR-based COVID-19 test to confirm continued negative test results. The cost for the test will be incurred by the traveler. Alternately, travelers can complete a 14-day self-quarantine day period without undergoing a second PCR-based COVID-19 test.
