IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? The Directorate of Migration in Maputo is being investigated for corruption after 17 million meticais (approximately US$ 278,000) have gone missing from its accounts.
What does the change mean? The investigation may cause delays in immigration services, including the issuance of residence permits (known locally as DIREs) and exit and re-entry permits, at the Maputo office.
Background: The investigation by the Mozambican Central Office for Combatting Corruption (GCCC) is looking into the disappearance of about one-third of the Directorate of Migration’s receipts for the month of March this year. The Directorate of Migration in Maputo recorded receipts of 48 million meticais (approximately US$ 790,000), of which only 31 million meticais (approximately US$ 512,000) appeared in its bank accounts.
BAL Analysis: Employers should be aware of potential slowdowns due to the investigation into the Directorate of Migration’s finances.
