Tourism, Visa & Health
In 2006, 312,000 tourists visited Madagascar and since 1990 the numbers have been increasing rapidly at about 11 percent each year, however tourism declined between 2008 – 2013 during a political crisis. Tourism has started to increase again since the election of the new president in 2014. A large part of Madagascar’s tourism is found in highly educated people who are interested in the vast wildlife and natural history. In 2007 tourism accounted for 6.3 percent of Madagascar’s GDP and created 206,000 jobs!Now Madagascar and tourism are going into the future with a good perspective.
