Mozambique visaChristine, you are absolutely correct. The standard is you have to use it within two month of it's issuance.
We are on v7225 and 6. This afternoon I spoke to the Mozambique Embassy in London regarding obtaining a visa for the two of us. One of their main points to me ( and she was at pains to emphasise it), was that it has to be used within two months, so do not apply for early it too early.
I do know that for those who use TDS Pinnacle (I realize this would apply to those from the USA) TDS can get them a multi use visa that is good for three months and could get one up to six months should someone need their passport for other trips.
I am only posting this so those from the USA will know there are some additional options.
