Trade Guide

Goods are imported into Mozambique when they enter Mozambique’s customs territory. Different rules apply to imports depending on whether they are commercial or non-commercial in nature. (Articles accompanying a traveler, such as personal clothing articles in actual use and small quantities of tobacco and alcohol, or samples are usually considered to be non-commercial and duty and tax exempt).

Conversely, goods are exported from Mozambique when they leave Mozambique’s customs territory.

Transit is a regime whereby goods cross Mozambican customs territory, en route to another destination, i.e. not intended for sale in Mozambique.
