Before you apply

In order to apply for a visitor's visa from Malawi you must either be a citizen of Malawi or legally reside here. If you are not a resident of Malawi, a justification for lodging the application here must be provided in writing.

In Malawi applicants for visa or residence permits submit their application at a Visa Application Center run by the external service provider VFS Global.

NB: Groups: If two or more people of the same nationality are travelling together, for any kind of purpose, they should register as a group application, not individual application. This will guarantee that the applications will be handled in time. If groups are larger than 15 people, they should be divided into smaller subgroups.
