Madagascar eVisa Information

All foreign citizens need a visa for Madagascar no matter the purpose or length of the intended stay.

In 2017, the Madagascan government implemented the Madagascar eVisa, an electronic visa that greatly speeds up the application process, and removes the need to queue to submit a Madagascar visa on arrival application at its borders.

This new digital system allows eligible citizens to pre-register a simple Madagascar visa online application to receive an approved eVisa sent by email.

The Madagascar eVisa application can be completed in just a few minutes, by filling in basic travel information, passport data, and personal information. It is also necessary to provide a current email address before submitting the Madagascar visa form.

An eVisa may be issued as a Madagascar business visa, tourist visa, or transit visa to travel to an onward destination.

The length of the Madagascar visa validity depends on the needs of the individual applicant, as it can be issued for stays of either 30, 60, or 90 days.

Madagascar online visa holders who wish to stay in the country for longer periods of consecutive stay should contact the nearest Madagascan consulate or embassy for further information.
