    A few things to keep in mind when you are planning to enter Mozambique through the Kosi Bay border post.
    1) 3rd party insurance, plus temporary import duty of R150.00 for your vehicle.
    2) Temporary import license should you be towing a boat/trailer/wet bike etc. This will be in the region of R80.00.
    3) Car registration papers. If you do not have these, any document that proves your ownership of the vehicle you are driving will suffice. E.g. Licence disc document
    4) A letter of permission from your vehicle insurance company stating that you may take your car into Mozambique and will still remain covered whilst there.
    5) A visa (Please check with the Mozambican embassy whether your nationality requires a visa). South African Passport holders DO NOT require visas. If you do not have time to apply for a visa before your trip you can buy one at the Kozi Bay border at a cost of R750.00. Please note that this is at their sole discretion.
    6) Please make sure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the day you enter Mozambique.
    7) Visitors are exempt from paying import duty on personal effects, sporting and recreational equipment and food and consumables as follows: 2.25 litres wine, 1 litre spirits, 200 cigarettes, 100 cigarillos, 50 cigars, 250 ml eau de toilette, 50 ml perfume.
