What is the change? Minimum wage rates will increase between 7 and 11 percent in most sectors of Mozambique’s economy.
What does the change mean? Companies are subject to the new pay thresholds but may set wages higher. Additionally, work permit application fees will increase because they are tied to the relevant industry-sector minimum wage rate.
Background: The Mozambican Consultative Labor Commission announced in April that it had reached consensus on new national minimum wages. Most increases will range between 7 and 11 percent.
BAL Analysis: Given that work permit application fees are tied to minimum wage rates, employers and individuals should factor the new minimum wages into their budgets for foreign national employees.
