Mozambique - Country Commercial Guide
Prohibited & Restricted Imports
Last published date:

Mozambique prohibits the importation of pornographic materials and certain controlled substances, and carefully regulates the importation of pharmaceuticals, firearms, and explosives. Left-hand drive vehicles intended for commercial use are banned. In 2017, a ban on the import of chicken meat was adopted ostensibly due to local producers’ phytosanitary concerns.

Further information on Mozambican customs regulations and guidelines may be obtained from the Customs Authority, the Autoridade Tributária de Moçambique.
