IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Minimum wage rates will increase between 6 and 18 percent in most sectors of Mozambique’s economy.
What does the change mean? Companies are now subject to the new pay thresholds. Work permit application fees are tied to industry-sector minimum wage rates and thus will also see an increase.
Background: Mozambique does not have one set minimum wage, but rather sets wage minimums by economic sector. Below is a look at wage increases in key industry sectors. The wage minimums will cover the period from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
BAL Analysis: Employers should factor the new minimum wages into their budgets for foreign national employees, especially because work permit application fees are tied to minimum wage rates.
