Reconsider your need to travel to Madagascar at this time due to the volatile political and security situation.
If you do decide to travel to Madagascar, you should exercise extreme caution. You should avoid unnecessary local travel and follow the advice of local authorities. Pay close attention to your personal security at all times and monitor the media and other local sources of information about possible new safety or security risks.
There have been violent demonstrations and looting in the capital Antananarivo and other cities over recent months due to local political tensions. A new president and transitional government have now been installed but the security situation remains fluid and could deteriorate further without warning.
Australians could be caught up in violence directed at others. You should avoid protests and demonstrations throughout Madagascar as they may become violent.
If the situation deteriorates further, the airport could be closed with little notice and other departure options may be limited. If you are concerned about the security situation, you should consider leaving. If you decide to stay, you should ensure that you have adequate supplies of water, food, fuel, cash and medications. You should also ensure that your documentation remains up-to-date. The Australian Government's ability to provide consular services may be limited.
