Safety is the watchword for the reopening.

The forthcoming reopening of Madagascar’s borders will initially be partial and progressive.

  • Regional flights linking Madagascar to Reunion and Mauritius will be operated respectively by Air Austral and Air Mauritius which will resume from 23 October 2021.
  • Flights from Europe to Antananarivo will resume from November 06, 2021 with the airlines Air Madagascar and Air France.

Taking into account the evolution of the global health situation and, consequently, to ensure the safety of the tourists and the local population, the countries are classified in 2 categories: “red” and “green”.

All travelers from “green” countries only will be allowed to enter the Malagasy national territory.

Countries classified as “red” are those with community transmission of more than 300 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants per week and a spread of variants of concern for Madagascar.

The current Terms and Conditions of Travel set out the following mandatory measures:

  • The presentation of a negative result of an Rt-PCR test performed 72 hours before boarding;
  • The presentation of a certificate of reservation for 2 nights and payment of a hotel room for at least 1 night for the confinement;
  • The realization of an Rt-PCR test on arrival in Madagascar, at the expense of the traveler (25 euros);
  • The airport-hotel transfer is provided by an approved shuttle, at the expense of the traveler;
  • Submission of a letter of commitment to containment until the test result is obtained;
  • Filling out a post-containment travel tracking form;
  • In case of a positive result to the Rt-PCR test on arrival, a 14 days confinement will be set up, at the traveler’s expense;

The Antananarivo Ivato airport, where all hygiene protocols are in place, will welcome passengers upon landing of airline flights.

  • Charter flights from Europe to Nosy Be are also allowed as well as cruise ships.

In its strategy to reopen the borders, the authorities are ensuring that the sanitary hygiene protocols elaborated by the National Tourism Office (ONTM), on behalf of the Ministry of Tourism and in partnership with the Confederation of Tourism (CTM), are implemented at all levels in order to ensure a pleasant and safe stay for tourists visiting Madagascar.
