Migration Activities

Mobility is an integral part of life in Mozambique. Mozambique is a large country with more than 53 border posts, significant transport corridors linking landlocked countries – such as Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi – to major sea ports and to the regional hub of South Africa. These transport corridors are home to mobile and migrant groups including cross border traders and long distance transporters. Historically, labour migrants work in South African mines and commercial farms. More recently, internal labour migration is on the increase as the economy opens up to extractives and energy companies. With the economy in Mozambique rapidly improving, it is beginning to experience increased migration flows into the country, particularly in the centre and north – as entry points for transit through Mozambique to South Africa, and as migrants enter to seek work with extractives companies.
