Malawi

Summary

From 1 October 2015 British visitors need a visa to enter Malawi. Details of the application process can be found on the website of the Malawian High Commission in London.

Most visits to Malawi are trouble-free, but you should take sensible precautions to protect yourself from muggers and bag-snatchers. Most thefts from visitors take place around the main bus stations in Lilongwe and Blantyre. See Safety and security

There is a low threat from terrorism. See Terrorism
