Malawi has a total of six types of visas: the tourist visa, the official visa, the transit visa, the diplomatic visa, the courtesy visa, and the e-visa. The tourist visa is issued for the purposes of tourism, residency, and/or business. The official visa is a visa that is reserved for people who have an official passport or a service passport and are entering Malawi on official business. The transit visa is issued to in-transit travelers for a duration of seven days. The diplomatic visa is issued to diplomatic passport holders for the purpose of an official visit (or mission) to/in Malawi. The courtesy visa is issued to those who were invited by the Malawi government to visit and are not eligible to receive a diplomatic visa. Finally, the e-visa is an electronic visa issued for the purposes of tourism, residency, and/or business.
