About Us

The Malawi High Commission in Pretoria, and the Malawi Consulate in Johannesburg, South Africa, facilitate strategic trade; strategic transportation (transit) routes; political, economic and social cooperation; and consular matters. The Mission’s consular service in South Africa is particularly important in view of the large Malawian Diaspora that has settled in that country. The High Commission also facilitates Malawi’s participation in activities of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The Mission also serves as a base for Malawi’s management of bilateral relations with Botswana, Lesotho, Mauritius, and Namibia on a non-residential basis.
