Like many African countries who see the value of this digital process, the e-visa portal will allow travellers to fill and submit an application, upload required documents including photos and pay for visa fees.

An access link will also be provided through an instant email notification sent to the applicant’s email address. The e-visa applications must be paid in US$.

This simple application process will support Malawe’s tourism efforts and drive a quicker response time for those planning their trips to these serene Southern African nation.
