Applications for the renewal of Malagasy passports issued after 2014 are processed either through the Embassy or directly by the Ministry of Public Security in Madagascar.
When processed through the Embassy, the procedure is as follows:
1. A scanned version of the application and all supporting documents is to be submitted by the applicant to the Embassy. The Embassy will then forward it to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for transmission to the Ministry of Public Security for approval. Find out the required documents here.
2. Once approved the hardcopy of the application and all supporting documents should be sent by the applicant (by DHL, or other means) to someone in Madagascar who will deposit them at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which will be in charge of their transmission to the Ministry of Public Security;
3. When the renewed passport is ready for collection at the Ministry of Public Security, anyone with the appropriate letter of authorisation from the applicant and legalised by the Embassy can collect it.

People are advised to renew their passport three (03) months before the end of their validity due to the processing time and the shipping time of the passports.
The issuance of new passports and the enrollment of newborns are currently under study at the Ministry of Public Security. Related information will be communicated in due course.
