Message for U.S. Citizens: Update 1 for 3/29

The U.S. Mission to Madagascar is still working on the two flight options discussed in previous emails. The State Department continues to explore other options but there are no guarantees.

Those who emailed about tomorrow’s flight to Dulles per the last alert’s instructions will receive an email shortly about your status on the flight and instructions.

Those who emailed about Tuesday’s fllght to Addis Ababa per a previous alert will also be contacted shortly.

The Embassy is inquiring about permission letters for those outside of Antananarivo to travel here. These are not guaranteed.  Please email if this concerns you.

There is no guarantee either of these flights will run. Those who have requested seats will be contacted about status.  If you have a seat, you would be responsible for paying for the flight (details to follow but please see the FAQ below). Priority considerations have been given to American citizens who are older adults, have underlying health conditions (such as diabetes or heart and lung disease), minors traveling without a parent or legal guardian, as well as other adults in need of medical assistance.

We will continue monitoring local developments closely and will share additional information as it becomes available.  We are experiencing a high volume of inquiries and will respond via email to those who have enrolled in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) as we have additional information.
