At the Airport – $$$, visa and transfer

So, you’ve landed at Ivato Airport! Woohoo! Welcome to Madagascar!

There are a few things you need to know before going through immigration. As of January 2016, They are charging a tourist visa of EUR50 per person. It is obtainable at the airport upon arrival for stays up to 30 days. Business or Longer stay visas must be prearranged with the embassy in JHB / DUR / CPT.

After you’ve cleared customs, we highly recommend exchanging some cash into Ariary, Madagascar’s currency. Unlike most places where airport exchange bureaus charge exorbitant rates, Ivato Airport offers the most convenient rates in the country. So, stock up – but be aware, you’ll be left with a gangster style pile of cash, as the highest Ariary denomination is 10,000, less than 3€.

Our driver will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel.
