The Malawi Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services has announced the launch of an online E-visa service for visitors to Malawi. This will be effective from 1st November 2019. This should help to streamline their services and make it easier and more efficient to travel to Malawi.

As a fast emerging complete destination with huge conservation success, stunning beaches and friendly culture Malawi is a wonderful choice for a tailor-made holiday. Hopefully this new system will continue to grow Malawi’s tourism.

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

Once the application is approved, a notification is sent by email. Similarly on the login page, an approval document authorising entry into Malawi can be downloaded to facilitate the applicant’s travel arrangements and endorsement of a visa at the port of entry by an Immigration Officer.
