The opening of a border post between Namaacha and Mbuzini has been discussed at Bi-National Commissions between South Africa and Mozambique.
As a result, Immigration officials have conducted an oversight visit to the area observing that the terrain and lack of suitable roads in the area, would significantly limit the feasibility of developing such a proposed port of entry.
For purposes of tourism the region is supported by the locality of the following ports of entry which are fully operational:
- Mananga – approximately 60 kms
- Lebombo – approximately 60 kms
- Jeppe’s Reef – approximately 100 kms
During the annual commemoration of Samora Machel, special provision is made for cross-border movements by establishing a temporary crossing point that is approved by the Minister for the day of the memorial. This allows for individuals to pay their respects.
