Exchange Controls

Exchange Control Regulations apply to all contracts which imply payments to foreign entities.

These contracts must be registered with the Central Bank of Mozambique – which is responsible for supervision of all banking, financial and monetary activities in Mozambique. Furthermore all services agreements that imply payments by a resident company to a non-resident company have to be previously authorised by the Ministry of Finance and then registered at the Central Bank.

  • Proof of direct foreign investment should be registered with the Central Bank
  • Proof of investment is required to allow repatriation of

(a) capital invested (shareholders loans, etc), and,
(b) any profits arising from the activity from the approved investment project.

  • Failure to register investments could result in the non recognition of the right to repatriate funds. Payables not recorded in the companies books (PGC) are also not remittable.
