    MOZ BORDERS TO STAY OPEN 24-HOURS
    Mozambique's borders with South Africa and Swaziland will stay open 24-hours a day from November 28 to facilitate the movement of holiday-makers and residents returning from both countries, independent television SOICO reported on Tuesday citing border authorities. Domingos Tivane, head of the Mozambican customs services in the southern region, said in a report broadcast by the channel that the move had been implemented because authorities expected more visitors from South Africa and Swaziland during the festive period. "We expect to attend to at least 1.5 million people during the festive period and in order to meet the demand we have decided to open the border for 24-hours between November 28 and January 16," said Tivane. He also said the move would result in reduced congestion at the borders as travellers could be attended at any time of the day. The border posts which would open around-the-clock were Ressano Garcia, Goba and Namaacha. Tivane also said special immigration and customs clearance points would be set aside for Mozambican miners working in South Africa during the same period. Mozambique is increasingly becoming a favoured tourism destination for South Africans who are attracted by the country's beaches and tourism facilities. Sapa /str/clh 11/18/08 08-33

    Tony Weaver, thanks for the info about the borders being open 24/7. Although standard practise, this is the first year they start so early - 28/11
