It seems Mozambique have recently changed their Visa conditions and it appears that they can no longer be obtained on board - Dont know how long that will last as it means most visitors from non Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries will need a visa before travel and Mozambique do not have consulates in many countries and if there is a consulate, fees will expensive and will take a lot of effort. Before you book a cruise, please check with your cruise line!
