Working in Madagascar

Madagascar has a growing economy built on a strong agriculture sector and growing textile, tourism and food industries. The island nation has strong trading partners and the diversity of their exports has driven growth continuously.

Working in Madagascar

Madagascar is a beautiful country, but it is a developing nation, and so job opportunities are scarce. You should obtain employment before applying for a work permit. The economy is mostly agricultural, with some tourism. The healthcare and education provisions are limited, so you will need private insurance if you are moving to Madagascar for work. The country has limited resources for policing, so security protocols must be followed at all times.
