Check your passport and travel documents before you travel

Passport validity

If you are visiting Madagascar, your passport should be valid for 6 months from the date you arrive, and with at least 2 blank visa pages. You should be able to show confirmation of your travel dates.

Check with your travel provider to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet their requirements.

Visas

You can buy a 30 or 60 day tourist visa on arrival at the airport in cash using US$, Euros, or Malagasy Ariary. Up to date information on visa fees is available on the Ministry of Tourism website.

You can also apply in advance of travel to the Madagascar Embassy in London for a tourist or immigrant visa. The official Malagasy e-visa website is not currently working for online applications.

You will be asked for evidence of onward or return travel at check-in and on arrival in Madagascar.

Make sure an entry stamp is recorded in your passport, and that your visa is valid for the period and purpose of your journey. A tourist visa can be extended during your stay in Madagascar up to a total stay of 90 days. Overstaying may lead to detention and deportation.

Travelling with children

Children already in possession of a visa don’t need further parental approval to enter Madagascar. A parent leaving Madagascar alone with a child must carry written authorisation from the absent parent.
