Update june 2022

At the new airport Ravenale (Ivato) in Antananarivo still a PCR test is required. This will cost you 25 euro and about 20 minutes.


The current situation (january 2022) is a negative travel advise, e.g. from the American Embassy: Do not travel to Madagascar due to COVID and related conditions.  Exercise increased caution due to crime.
