Once that is done you can drive over to the Mozambican side.
Park on the holding apron, and take your passports to the Mozambican immigration officials to be stamped.
Mozambique immigration is the prefab building on the right hand side (moz Flag flies outside)

                                           PLEASE CHECK TO SEE THAT ALL YOUR PASSPORTS HAVE BEEN

                                STAMPED CORRECTLY STAMPED INTO MOZAMBIQUE   (SEE “Corruption” BELOW)

4. Duty Free Import Allowances

5. Third Party Insurance:

6. Border Police & Customs Control:
When you have obtained all your documentation, you can drive with your car to the exit gate. 
Here the Customs inspector and Border police will take your gate pass, and check your passports and vehicle papers.

If you car is being financed by a bank and it is registered in the bank name, make sure you have a letter from the bank authorizing you to take the vehicle into Mozambique. Make sure the validity period covers the duration of your stay.

Please check full details and requirements with your bank. Most banks require you to obtain this cross border consent letter each time you travel over the border.

7. Corruption:
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.
