VISA ON ARRIVAL
Depending on your nationality, you may be able to obtain a visa, valid for a single stay of up to 30 days, on arrival in Malawi. However, a fee will still be charged (payable in US dollars) and there is no guarantee of entry. We therefore strongly advise applicants to obtain a visa before travelling.
