Moving your employees to Malawi

Deciding to extend your business to Malawi opens up a plethora of opportunities. The country is rich in resources like tobacco, tea, and minerals, presenting varied investment opportunities. Malawi also has a burgeoning tech industry and has been rapidly integrating digital technology into its business landscape. 

What makes it especially appealing is the widespread use of English in official and business communication, effectively nullifying language as a barrier. On the diplomatic front, Malawi has trade relations and agreements with several countries, and is a member of multiple regional bodies like the African Union and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA). All of these factors make it an excellent springboard for accessing other markets across the continent.

Key immigration facts about Malawi

Immigration procedures in Malawi are multifaceted, and understanding them is pivotal for any successful business move. For example, a Business Residence Permit is usually the first thing to consider for foreign nationals. These permits typically last for one to two years, with options for renewal. 

Another important point is the Temporary Employment Permit (TEP), ideal for short-term assignments or specific projects. Note that obtaining a visa does not grant the right to work in Malawi; a separate work authorization is mandatory.

The corporate tax stands at 30%, but there are several nuances, including incentives for investment in special economic zones. Importantly, both resident and non-resident employees are liable for tax on income earned within Malawi.
