Approximate reading time: 1 minute

Mozambique’s Minister of Interior Jaime Basílio Monteiro is in the Angola, where he is expected to sign a bilateral agreement abolishing the requirement for a visa in an ordinary passport, for visitors between the two states.

A media statement seen by APA on Thursday said Monteiro will be received in audience by President João Lourenço after signing the agreement late on Thursday.

“In recent times there has been a considerable flow of visitors in both directions, as well as trade. It is expected that with the suppression of visas there will be an increase”, read the statement.

Mozambique has already signed agreements for visa exemption with most countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region, with the exception of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Seychelles.

SADC is promoting the signing, without further delay, of bilateral agreements on visa exemption for all categories of passports. With this system, SADC aims to ease movement of tourists within the region.
