Online registration and payment
Before you can hand in your passport and other documentation at the embassy, consulate or VFS-office, you must register your application in the Application Portal. If this is the first time that you are registering an application in the portal, you will first need to create a user account.
Once you have registered, you will receive confirmation by email, with a cover letter attached. The cover letter will confirm that you have filled in the application form and paid the fee. You need to print this letter and submit it together with the other required documentation.
Please visit the UDI website for information about the fees.
Note that you pay the fee when registering the application in the portal

The service fee can be paid cash in Malawi Kwacha at the Visa Application Centre, or can be deposited to their account. Please refer to their website for more information.
Please note that an additional courier fee of 23 Euros will also be added.
