The Chakwera-led administration has promulgated a commendable measure, abolishing Visa requirements for a total of 79 nations, among which prominent nations such as China, Russia, the USA, the UK, and Israel stand. Henceforth, citizens of these countries shall traverse Malawi’s borders sans the encumbrance of Visa obligations.
This momentous decree has been officially promulgated by the Minister of Homeland Security, Ken Zikhale Ng’oma, exercising the jurisdiction vested in him by section 40 of the Immigration Act, as delineated in government notice number No. 6 of 2024.
The discerning decision to waive Visa requirements is poised to invigorate the tourism sector within the nation, thereby fostering the influx of international visitors. This influx, in turn, promises to catalyze the accrual of foreign exchange, thereby fortifying the economic prospects of Malawi
