Mozambique Expects 225,000 Foreign Visitors Over Easter

The Mozambican authorities expect 225,000 people to enter the country during Easter, and are preparing for border posts to respond to the flow of passengers during this period, Mozambican Customs said on Monday, 18 March.

“In terms of the number of people expected to enter our territory between now and 5 April, we estimate 225,000 travellers,” said the director-general of Mozambique Customs, Taurai Tsama, speaking to journalists at the launch of Operation Easter.

The source, quoted by Lusa, added that of this number of entries, around 8,000 are Mozambican miners working in South Africa.

Taurai Tsama said that the country’s main border (Ressano Garcia), which links Mozambique to South Africa, will remain open 24 hours a day, while the others will adjust their schedules according to “demand”.

The director-general of Customs said that a multi-sectoral team, including the Defence and Security Forces (FDS), had been activated to respond to the movement of people and goods typical of the Easter season.

Operation Easter will run from today until 5 April, with the highlight being Easter Day on 31 March.
