You can now have a covid Antigen test done at the Komatipoort border when crossing from South Africa to Mozambique. The test costs R170 per person and is valid for 14 days. There is a 15-20 minute wait for the Antigen test result. Kids age 5 and under do not need to have an Antigen test done. The test can be used on the South African and Mozambican side of the border when entering Mozambique and also when traveling back into South Africa.
GoBundu advises our clients to rather have a PCR Covid test done at a laboratory before arriving at the border, this is due to the Antigen tests at the border being done only between times 9 am and 2 pm daily and that the border only does 50 Antigen tests a day.
The PCR negative Covid test must be used at the border within 72 hours of you having the test done. The day that you have the test done is counted as day number 1. Kids age 5 and under do not require a PCR negative Covid test to be done.
