Essentials in Mozambique

Portuguese is the official language, and although English is taught in secondary schools, it is mainly spoken in the southern tourist regions. Valid passports are required for a minimum of six months beyond the intended date of departure, and nationals from all countries, aside from South Africa, require visas. Visitors require a yellow fever certificate if travelling from infected areas. Inoculation against diphtheria, hepatitis A, malaria, tetanus and typhoid are required. Hospital facilities outside the major cities of Maputo and Beira are limited and medical insurance is strongly encouraged. Visitors are also advised to carry personal medical supplies with them and to drink only bottled water. All water should be treated as if contaminated and should be boiled or otherwise sterilised.
