2 min read

The Malawi Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services wishes to announce the launch of an online visa service for visitors to Malawi effective 1st November, 2019.

Through the Malawi online visa service, applicants will be able to register and login on the e-visa platform, fill and submit and applications, upload supporting documents including applicants photo and pay the visa fees in advance in line with new payment arrangements.

Once the application is approved, a notification is sent by email and similarly on the login page where an approval document authorising entry into Malawi can be downloaded for use to facilitate the applicants travel arrangements and endorsement of a visa sticker onto the traveller’s passport at the port of entry by an Immigration Officer.

To apply for a e-visa, register and login to the Immigration website: www.immigration.gov.mw or www.evisa.gov.mw

Malawi is currently emerging rapidly as one of Africa’s most complete destinations and this new visa system, making it even easier to visit the Warm Heart of Africa, will give it yet another boost. For a long time Malawi’s stunning beaches, beautiful and varied landscapes and fascinating and friendly cultural experiences have been some of the best that Africa has to offer. The wildlife transformations currently underway courtesy of African Parks’ amazing conservation work are not only creating safari experiences that match the high quality of the country’s other attractions but are also bringing worldwide attention to this hidden gem, not least courtesy of African Parks’ president HRH Prince Harry. These developments, exposure and now simplified entry will be sure to accelerate Malawi’s tourism growth.

Please note that Visa to Malawi only grants permission to the traveller to enter Malawi within the validity period of the Visa subject to fulfilling other entry requirements. The validity period of the Visa is not necessarily the permitted days to stay/reside in Malawi. Number of days/residential permit to legally stay in Malawi is issued at the port of entry or on application at the Malawi Immigration Headquarters.
