New procedures for visa applications and legalization of documents

We inform you that starting from 15 January 2024 the submission of applications for entry visas for Italy and for the legalization of documents will be managed on behalf of this Embassy by the VFS company, based in Maputo, on the 6th floor of the Maputo Shopping Center (rua Ngungunhane). In particular VFS will be responsible for receiving visa applications, collecting consular fees and returning passports to users once the Embassy has assessed the applications.

Users will be able to apply for a visa with this company without the need for an appointment, every weekday between 08:00 and 14:00.

For information on the requirements for individual types of visas, we invite you to consult the Embassy website or that of VFS Global.

The VFS company will also provide an information and assistance service to the telephone number  made available on the following page or to the email address

In order to improve the service for all users, we therefore inform you that this Embassy will no longer accept visa applications at its counters, limiting itself to honouring the appointments already taken during these first days of service transition. Therefore, starting from January 17th, it will no longer be possible to take an appointment on the Prenot@mi portal for visa purposes: from that date, appointments taken for visa purposes will therefore be cancelled or disregarded.
