If any children are traveling across borders, parents are required to provide unabridged birth certificates at the borders.
The border officials are not as relaxed as they used to be, so be careful what you take with you. You don’t need to take everything though, as you can get most supplies in Mozambique.
All towns have the basic supplies, and the bigger towns like Maputo, Xai-Xai, Vilanculos and Inhambane have pretty much everything you need.
Alcohol is subject to normal border restrictions. You are allowed to bring two bottles of wine or one bottle of hard tack into the country per person. Smokers should not bring more than 200 cigarettes.
Mozambique is one of the world’s best tropical holiday destinations. The people are very friendly and time is on a different, more relaxed schedule.
