IMMIGRATION

A work permit is a three tier process. The contract of employment needs to be authorized by the Labour Department first. The applicant may not be present in Madagascar while this is being done. Once the applicant receives the authorization, he needs to go to the Malagasy Embassy and apply for a transformable visa. They can only apply for a transformable visa which is valid for 30 days.

Once the applicant arrives in Madagascar, the transformable visa will be transformed into  work and resident permit for the duration of the contract. If the applicant is only going for 3 months, they can apply for a business visa, but they CANNOT convert the visa to a work permit in country

DOCUMENTS 

A list of documents will be provided upon confirmation of the visa process.

VISA REQUIREMENTS


Visa will be issued on arrival to any nationality for 90 days upon paying the fee. If the applicant does not h have a Malagasy embassy, the transformable visa can be applied for At Antananarivo Airport. We will advise as to whether the applicant needs to apply for an entry visa, upon confirmation of nationality.  Passports need to be valid for 6 months.
