Africa is the second largest continent in the world and has the world’s longest river – the Nile. The vast majority of the world's diamonds are mined in Africa.

Malawi, officially known as the Republic of Malawi, is a developing African country. The geographical boundary of the country extends into southeastern Africa. Being a developing country, Malawi still has an economy based on the agricultural sector.
The government of Malawi is aware of the need to increase foreign investment to promote technology transfer, build human capital, and enable the private sector to be a significant driver of economic progress. In 2012, the energy and infrastructure sectors received 62% and 33% of all foreign investment, respectively.


Even though the country is a developing country, tourism and the work sector remain a pivot for the economy. Therefore, visa options are also available to support foreign workers, tourists, and investors in the country.
