Are you planning a trip to Madagascar? To travel to Madagascar, you must obtain a Madagascar visa. Make sure your passport meets the requirements of Madagascar immigration guidelines, as well. At least six months validity and two blank visa pages are needed for any necessary stamps on your passport when you depart Madagascar. A Madagascar visa requires the following documents.

To obtain a tourist visa to Madagascar, you must submit a completed visa application form and signed U.S. passport, two passport photos, and an itinerary of your visit to Madagascar.

If you are applying for a business visa to Madagascar, you must submit all of the same documents as if you were applying for a tourist visa, as well as a business letter. A business letter should introduce the applicant, describe the nature of the business that will be conducted during the trip, specify the type of visa required and the preferred validity period, and demonstrate sufficient funds for your travel expenses. Your business letter should be written on the letterhead of the organization for which you are working.

NOTE: If you will be in Madagascar for less than 30 days, you can apply for your visa upon arrival. Remember, due to high demand, you may encounter delays when getting your Madagascar visa upon arrival. It is strongly advised that you obtain your visa before traveling to Madagascar.
