The Embassy of the Republic of Mozambique presents its compliments to

basis, dependents of official employees of the United States Government
assigned to official duty in Mozambique and dependents of official employees of
the Mozambique Government assigned to official duty in the United States be
authorized to be employed in the receiving state.
For the purposes of this agreement,
"Dependents" shall mean:
Spouses;
Unmarried dependent children under 21 years of age;
Unmarried dependent children under 23 years of age
who are in full-time attendance as students at a post-
secondary educational institution; and,
Unmarried children who are physically or mentally
disabled.
For the purposes of this agreement, official employees shall mean
diplomatic agents, consular officers, and members of support staffs, assigned to
diplomatic missions, consular offices and missions to international
organizations.
In the case of dependents who seek employment in the United States, an
official request must be made by the Embassy of Mozambique in Washington to
the Office of Protocol in the Department of State. After the processing of the
official request, the Mozambique Embassy will be informed that the dependent
may accept employment.

In the case of dependents who seek employment in Mozambique, the
request shall be made by the United States Embassy in Mozambique to the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. After the processing of the official
request, the United States Embassy will be informed that the dependent may
accept employment.
The United Sates Government and the Mozambique Government wish to
confirm their understanding that dependents who obtain employment under
this agreement and who have immunity from the jurisdiction of the receiving
state in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations or the
Conventions on the Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations, or any
other applicable international agreement, have no immunity from civil or
administrative jurisdiction with respect to matters arising out of such
employment. Such dependents are also responsible for payment of income and
social security taxes on any remuneration received as a result of employment in
the receiving state. Dependents continue to enjoy all other privileges and
immunities to which they are entitled.
The Embassy of Mozambique further proposes that, if these provisions
are acceptable to the Department of State, this note and Department of State's
reply concurring therein shall constitute an agreement between the two
governments which shall enter into force on the date of that reply note and shall
remain in force until ninety days after the date of the written notification from
either government to the other of intention to terminate.
The Embassy of the Republic of Mozambique avails of this opportunity to
renew to the Department of State the assurances of its highest consideration.
