As with most places in Africa – including South Africa – corruption has become a problem.
One of the scams we have encountered is that the Immigration Officials do not stamp all passports presented to them. On your return you are then “fined” for not having it stamped.
Please check when it is given back to you that you have been stamped into Mozambique (see example on left)

8. When dealing with the Police:
When you are pulled off by the traffic police (they wear a white shirt with navy blue trousers) always insist on a ticket and receipt for spot fining.
When you are pulled off by police (they wear grey uniforms) make sure to ask for identification and ask their name if they want to search your car for illegal objects.
Never hand over your passport or driver's licence - you are allowed to only show them.
Long queues are not the norm at this border post. (Holidays it might be different.) A new tar road from the border to Maputo is 95% completed. Travelling to Malongane from the border takes about 25 min - tarred plus sand road.
