Moving your employees to Madagascar

Madagascar, a country rich in natural resources, offers a range of opportunities for international businesses seeking to expand their operations. Strategically located in the Indian Ocean, Madagascar provides access to African, Asian, and European markets, making it an attractive destination for investment and business growth.

The political climate in Madagascar has been gradually stabilizing, promoting a more conducive environment for foreign businesses to thrive. As a result, the country is witnessing steady economic growth, driven by key sectors such as agriculture, mining, and tourism.

With French and Malagasy being the most widely spoken languages, communication is facilitated for businesses originating from French-speaking countries. However, English is also gaining prominence, particularly in the business sector, making Madagascar accessible to a wider range of international companies.

Several factors contribute to Madagascar’s appeal for international business expansion. Its growing economy, political stability, and strategic location offer unique opportunities for businesses seeking to tap into emerging markets. Additionally, Madagascar’s diverse culture and linguistic landscape provide a vibrant and dynamic environment for companies and employees alike.

Key immigration facts about Madagascar

Navigating immigration requirements is a critical aspect of global mobility and employee relocation to Madagascar. Here are some essential facts to consider:

General Entry Visas: Foreign nationals visiting Madagascar for tourism or business purposes must obtain either a tourism visa or a business visa, respectively, for stays less than three months. Tourism visas can be obtained upon arrival at the airport, while business visas must be acquired at a Malagasy embassy or consulate in the applicant’s home country.

Work Visas: To work in Madagascar, foreigners need to secure a transformable visa, which is valid for one month. This visa can be obtained at a Malagasy embassy or consulate and requires a prior work permit issued by the Ministry of Labor, as well as a local labor contract stamped by the Ministry.

Work Permit: Foreign nationals must obtain a work permit from the Malagasy Ministry of Labor to work in Madagascar. The permit is usually issued within two months of application, and requires a local labor contract with a Madagascar address and prior approval from the Ministry of Labor. A fee of EUR 100 must also be paid.
