Malawi is known for its diverse cultures and its biggest body of water, Lake Malawi, where events happen all the time. Citizens from Sweden are allowed to visit Malawi with a visa. To obtain a visa, most people go to the embassy or consulate. To make it easier to get a visa, the Malawi Immigration Department released the e-Visa program since November 2019.
This new online visa program allows foreign nationals to get an e-Visa online. Using this process saves a lot of time and effort planning a trip.
