Madagascar’s Transformable Visa has been discontinued therefore foreign nationals seeking to work in Madagascar, must now apply for a work permit prior to entering the country. The purpose of the Transformable Visa was to allow foreign nationals to enter the country under a 30-day temporary status in order to obtain a long-term visa while in Madagascar. However, the Transformable Visa was discontinued because foreign nationals entering the country under this visa, were not able to apply for long-term visas within the 30-day deadline.
