    As from 1 October 2015, Malawi has introduced new visa requirements to include nationals of those countries where Malawian’s are required to pay for visas. You can check which nationalities require a visa and for contacts for Malawi’s Diplomatic Missions around the world. VISA is now required for US citizens.
    Visas for the majority of nationalities can be obtained on arrival in Malawi (excluding those specified below as having to obtain them in advance). Although the process at the ports of entry is currently time-consuming, even travellers arriving unaware of the new requirements armed only with their passports are having visa applications processed on arrival and are successfully entering the country.
    However, current official advice to avoid unnecessary inconveniences is to obtain a Malawi visa in advance of travel from the nearest Malawi Diplomatic Mission. For visas to be obtained on arrival it is also preferable, if possible, to take application forms (click here to download) and the items detailed in the requirements below, plus the requisite visa fee in US$ cash:
    • Valid passport for not less than six months
    • Two passport photos
    • Covering letter
    • Invitation letter (excludes tourists)
    • Air ticket/Itinerary
    • Confirmed Hotel booking
    • Three months latest bank statements

    Update August, 2015: Over 100 peer supporters came to KCH to give a report on their group activities. Most groups are active in providing health education, social support, BS and BP testings. Challenges include lack of transportation to KCH and poor access to medications at the health centers.
