Mozambique is located on the eastern coast of Africa. It borders Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the north, Zambia to the north-west, Zimbabwe to the west, South Africa to the south-west and the Indian Ocean to the east.
In 2009, President Guebuza of Mozambique signed into law a number of major changes to their policy on gambling. This included the explicit legalization of online gambling in black and white. This establishes the complete and total legality of any type of online gambling that players want to engage in regardless of where the operators are located. This is one of the most open and straight-forward policies of any African nation when it comes to the topic of allowing their citizens to gamble on the Internet.
While actually playing is explicitly legal, there is no licensing process in place specifically for online gambling sites. This could be coming in the future, but for now, there are no publicized efforts to get this going. This in particular is very interesting because the same laws introduced in 2009 that were mentioned above drastically brought down the bar of entry to the land-based side of the industry to allow more companies to get in on the action (while still requiring a high level of service). Along these lines, you would expect that Mozambique be more aggressive with the licensing of online gambling operators and software companies. However, this hasn't been the case.
An interesting option would be for them to offer tax incentives for companies to relocate to Mozambique, and it seems to be in line with their overall strategy for increasing activity in this particular industry. It's a pattern that's happened in several other locations in the past, and it could be the most likely path for Mozambique to follow in the future.
Player protections in Mozambique are a bit tricky since there's no online gambling operators licensed in the country. Along these lines, you won't get any real help from the government since it's not inside of their jurisdiction if something goes wrong with a foreign site. This means you should stick to the most reputable foreign sites if you do decide to play so that you'll maximize the chances of your funds being safe.
