Welcome to the Visa Section of Malawi Immigration Website
The section provides information on the procedure that is applicable to all foreign nationals who wish to apply for visa to enter or re-enter Malawi.In Malawi, visa means an entry or endorsement in a passport or other travel document by an immigration officer or any official of Government so authorized, indicating that the bearer has been granted permission to enter or re-enter Malawi and serves only the purposes of entry rather than stay. If you wish to use this website for the purpose of staying, working or doing business, please refer to Permit Section of this Website.
A visa does not give an automatic right of entry to the holder. The Government reserves the right to interview the holder at the port of entry and may refuse the holder entry. The visa applications may be submitted at the immigration headquarters in Blantyre and regional immigration offices in Lilongwe and Mzuzu at Malawi. In addition, the applications may be submitted at any of our Foreign Missions
