Madagascar & COVID - Travel Advice & Things To Know

Madagascar COVID-19 Updates

Good news!

Since the 13th of August 2022, Madagascar has abandoned all covid measures. You do not need to be vaccinated and you also do not need to show a PCR test to be able to enter the country. 

International flights - Almost all airlines fly to Madagascar again. KLM / Air France, Turkish Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Kenyan Airlines and Air Madagascar ( from Paris) have direct flights from Europe to Madagascar. Other options to fly to Madagascar are with Air Austral via Reunion island, or Air Mauritius via Mauritius. 
Domestic flights - You can book your domestic flights online with Tsaradia.  

We encourage you to book a road trip to Madagascar and go and explore the country. Many people’s livelihood depends on the tourism sector and this has been put to an abrupt standstill for way too long. An adventurist mindset is needed tough. Some hotels will not be in operation anymore, so the information in your Travel Guide might not reflect the reality on the ground. Not to worry though, Roadtrip Africa is present on the ground, and can sort you out with un-expectancies. Good to know that you will be welcomed with open arms, lodges will offer great discounts and you will have the beaches and parks to yourself. Do we need to say more?

How do I arrange my tourist visa to Madagascar?

All nationalities can buy a tourist visa on arrival. Your passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months.
