Learn More: Health Declaration

MALAWI IS OPEN: Malawi re-opened for tourism on 1 September 2021.

The Malawi Health Declaration is a mandatory travel document implemented by immigration authorities from Malawi to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the country. Passengers must submit it together with a negative result from the COVID-19 PCR Test. It must be issued within the previous 72 hours before their arrival to the country. This document does not replace a visa.

Get started here

All passengers arriving in Malawi are eligible to fill out the Malawi Health Declaration. Travelers must also have electronic proof of full vaccination to enter the country.

All nationalities can apply.

You must declare the countries you have traveled to in the last 21 days, your full name, passport number, date of arrival, the place of accommodation, and your health status in the previous two weeks. Moreover, you will need to attach your negative COVID-19 PCR Test certificate. You might be required to specify other details such as your contact number and email address if required. Otherwise, your access to the country will be denied.

Check out our application page to obtain your Malawi Health Declaration immediately!

Once you submit your request, our experts will take care of the paperwork. If everything is ready, you will receive a confirmation email together with your Malawi Health Declaration. Don’t forget to print and sign it before your arrival so that you can avoid any possible inconvenience at the airport.

Required Documents to Apply
  • A valid passport, with at least 6 months of validity.

  • A credit/debit card.

  • Proof of vaccination (if applicable)

Important Instructions
  • All travelers entering Malawi, regardless of their nationality, age or any other consideration, must carry their Malawi Health Declaration.

    It DOES NOT replace a visa. If your country requires a visa, the immigration officers will ask for your Visa when you enter the country. Keep in mind some nationalities will require a paper visa. If that is your case, we suggest you contact your local embassy.

  • At the airport, you must show the deliverable that we will send you to pass health and safety checks established by the Health Authorities.

  • It is highly recommended that you keep your deliverable with you either as a soft copy (smartphone, tablet, etc.) or as a hard copy in case of any failure in the system.
