Visa applications filed in Madagascar are processed by the Consulate General of France in Tananarive, the only authority to make decisions on visas.
  • For short-stay visa applications, the period of instruction varies according to the period of the year. Applications are processed in 72 hours from January to April inclusive, and from October to December inclusive. In the high season (May to September inclusive), applicants are invited to submit their requests to the TLS Contact Center at least 10 days before their scheduled departure date.
