The Work Permit (WP)
If the company has quota, and even before the worker travels to Mozambique, the hiring of the foreign national is communicated to the National Directorate of Labour in the Province where the company is located and the worker will be carrying out duties. A Work Permit is normally issued in about 3 weeks, valid for 2 years and can be renewed.
If the company has reached its quota, it may apply for an authorisation to contract a new foreign worker, however, in this case, admission is at the discretion of the Minister of Labour. The application must be accompanied with the academic and professional qualifications of the worker and the approval of the Union for the sector. A Work Permit is normally issued in about 4 weeks, valid for 2 years and can be renewed.
