Advice

Due to the risk of kidnapping and high crime rates more generally, visitors to Mozambique are advised to maintain a low profile at all times, to be particularly vigilant after dusk, and to avoid traveling by foot at night. Drive with windows closed, doors locked, and with all valuables hidden from sight. Keep in mind that criminals may be armed; do not resist if confronted and do not look your attacker(s) directly in the eye. Alert consular authorities to any suspicious behavior.

More generally, individuals are advised to avoid nonessential road travel outside urban centers in central Mozambique and to cooperate with authorities at checkpoints (always carry current identification and vehicle documentation with you).
