Travelling to Malawi is expected to become easier as the Malawian government is set to roll out an online visa application process on November 1. The e-visa portal will allow travellers to fill and submit visa applications, upload required documents including photos, and pay for visa fees.
The online visas are also expected to make the visa process faster as the visa applications will be processed within three working days. Once approved, the approval letter will be accessible through the applicant’s e-visa account. A link will also be provided through an instant email notification sent to the applicant's email.
Joseph Chauwa, a spokesperson for the Malawian Immigration Department, said, “Once the application is approved, a notification is sent through an e-mail and similarly on the login page where an approval document authorizing entry into Malawi can be downloaded for use to facilitate the applicants travel arrangements and endorsement of a visa sticker onto the traveller’s passport at the port of entry by an Immigration officer."
