Visas for Madagascar

Updated: 17th June 2020

Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from Madagascar with at least two blank pages.

African countries are in a continual state of political flux and visa requirements can change overnight. It is essential that you check visa requirements with the local embassy, consulate or a reputable visa handling company for the most up to date visa information before you travel.

Visa Requirements

Entry visas are required by all travellers visiting Madagascar. Visas valid for 30 days are free but extra "fees" may be requested at ports of entry (payable in cash in Malagasy Ariary, US dollars or Euros). It is also possible to obtain visas valid for 90 days at Antananarivo airport at a cost of around USD $90.

Please note that it's not possible to extend visas obtained at the airport. Also, make sure you receive an entry stamp in your passport on arrival.

If you prefer to obtain your visa prior to arrival, contact your nearest Madagascar embassy or consulate.
