I'm British and my partner Mauritian how long can we stay in Madagascar for ? And what do we need to prove on entering .
You can stay up to three months on a tourist visa. if you stay up to 30 days, it's free. Up to 60 days it will cost €60.
You need to show your return flight as prove.
You do not need photo's and you can optain your visa upon arrival.
So there is no price difference at the airport or thru my embassy? At the airport is it a fairly easy quick process ??
No, it's goes African slow, but loading of the suitcases goes slow also.
Is the thirty day free at the airport?
yes, it's free. You just have to show your return ticket, so be sure you have a printed version of your e-ticket.
We just returned from Madagascar and acquired our visas prior to leaving home; with the hopes of avoiding standing in line. We were glad we did. We flew in from Paris on a huge plane full of people waiting in line for a free visa; one agent issueing visas. The line for having a visa will be shorter. And please make note of Wendy's description of "African slow"...she knows what she is talking about.
On the Madagascar Consulate website it says $35 (USD) for the 30-day visa and $84 for 90 days. Do I understand correctly that you have to pay for the visa if you get it in advance but that it is free on arrival? Thanks.
The information on different websites can vary a bit. I can insure you that you can obtain the visa for 30 days for FREE upon arrival.
The Visa is still free if you attain it before arriving in Madagascar . The only cost is the cost of shipping/mail to and from the embassy in Washington DC. We sent and received back the passport with the visa in approx 1 week time: speedy by my standards. Note: I did send by a traceable method; Fed Ex or UPS with a tracking number.
Any thoughts on getting it at the Consulate in Nairobi? Worth the effort in order to skip the wait time at the airport upon arrival?Edited: 11:49 am, September 24, 2012
