Welcome to the Malawi High Commission Immigration and Consular Services. We provide information and assistance to Malawi Citizens in the United Kingdom and all countries of accreditation namely; Ireland, Iceland, Denmark, Malta, Finland, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden. We offer passport application (Note passports are processed in Malawi), Citizenship services, Emergency Travel documents, Police clearance (processed in Malawi) and apostille (legalisation of documents-birth, marriage and death certificates.)
Due to high volume of application and delays, the High Commission recommends that all applicants for passport and services processed in Malawi, at least do so 180 days before expiry of their visas or need for a new document to avoid inconveniences. Those travelling for emergency purposes can do so using EMERGENCY TRAVEL DOCUMENT to Malawi only.
