Entry Fee Implementation

United States Embassy Lilongwe, Malawi

Message for U.S. Citizens:  Entry Fee Implementation Postponed

June 26, 2015

The Government of Malawi has postponed the implementation of an entry fee for U.S. citizens arriving in Malawi which had been scheduled to take effect as of July 1, 2015.

The Government of Malawi had previously announced the introduction of an entry fee of $75 USD for nationals of countries which require Malawians to pay visa fees.  This would apply to U.S. citizens.

The Government of Malawi may introduce this fee at a later date.

The U.S. Embassy Lilongwe, Malawi, will provide further information on the introduction of a fee as information becomes available.
