The National Migration Service of Mozambique raised US$ 283,000 dollars (more than EUR 236,000) issuing border visas between December 13 and January 8, the institution’s spokeswoman has announced .
“This amount was obtained from issuing border visas to 5,667 foreign visitors,” Cira Fernandes told a press conference in Maputo.
The revenue was a result of work done by the institution at the 44 crossing points qualified to issue border visas, she said.
The mooring in Maputo of six cruise ships was fundamental to the total, the institution granting 1,554 visas to tourists from the vessels.
Brazilians, Americans and British formed the majority of those granted visas over the Christmas period, a development seen by the institution as “very positive”.Source: Lusa
