Latest news for Visas on Arrival

As of 19 September 2016, the Malawian government has withdrawn the requirement for people requiring a Visa on Arrival to apply for a Visa letter in advance (see https://bradtmalawiupdate.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/visas-on-arrival/). Visas can be bought on arrival without any complication by nationals of all countries whose citizens require them.

Malawi still has three types of tourist visas:

–  Single Entry Visa:  These visas are subject to a fee of $75 USD when issued at a port-of-entry in Malawi or $100 USD when issued by a Malawian embassy or consulate.  

–  Multiple-Entry Visa:  These visas are valid for 6 or 12 months for a fee of $150 USD or $250 USD, respectively, when issued at a port-of-entry in Malawi or $220 USD or $300 USD, respectively, when issued by a Malawian embassy or consulate.  

–  Transit Visa:  These visas are valid for seven days and are available for a fee of $50 USD when issued at a port-of-entry in Malawi or $70 USD when issued by a Malawian embassy or consulate. 

All visa fees are payable in U.S. dollars.  Please note that fees charged by Malawian diplomatic missions may vary from the figures cited above.
