Just return to Madagascar after three months and come to learn that I will need to go to Tana to get my Biometric resident card.
I was able to go through the Tana airport with my resident visa in my passport, as my old resident plastic card has expired for about a year.
My Resident Visa in my passport is good till 2025, but I am seeing on the streets here in Mahajanga that the police are starting to stop vasaha for "new" resident cards.
I was thinking that maybe my passport would be enough of my resident status till a biometric machine came to my city in Mahajanga.
So, my question is-- what has been your experience in acquiring your biometric card? I understand the cut-off date is at the end of Nov?
Any government website you know of that clearly explains the rules.
Any Middle Man in Tana you know of that knows how to work the system to bring this painful chore to a smooth result, I mention this because time is short and travel and hotel expenses add up with each extra day.
