The Republic of Madagascar is reportedly the world's oldest islands and the source of much of the world's finest chocolate. Although many nations have borders with the Indian Ocean such as South Africa, Oman and Indonesia, very few are completely contained within it. Those that do include Comoros, Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles and Sri Lanka.
The island nation almost went bankrupt in 1982 and had its IMF financial support suspended in 1991 due to political turmoil, however, thankfully this was reinstated in 2004 with half of their debt being written off. Although progress is being made a significant proportion still lives below the national poverty line of just $1 per day. They do, however, apparently have half of the world's supply of sapphires.
When it comes to sending parcels to Madagascar it would take a respectable four to five days to reach the island on our Â£28.29 service via Parcel Monkey Air Express or three to four days on our Â£59.95 service via DHL - for a light parcel. If your parcel is heavier you can expect to pay Â£56.69 and Â£199.95 respectively for a 10kg parcel. We do have other restrictions in terms of length, width, height etc., but those prices should give you an approximation of what you could expect.
When looking at how easy it is to send parcels into the country it should be worth noting that the Malagasy government does earn significant revenues from taxes and duties on imports. We also expect that you will need a Bordereau de Suivi des Cargaisons, commercial invoice, bill of landing or air way bill, a packing list, import declaration and certificate of origin.
There are restrictions on the importation of tobacco leaf and vanilla as well as the usual narcotics, explosives, gemstones and precious metals.

Excellent service, I would recommend everyone sending parcel.
The pick up was good. The only thing was that id explained on live chat that i had no way of printing a label in the timescale and was assured that the driver would have one. Which was a real relief at the time. The driver however knew nothing about it and said he d have to contact head office. I felt a bit like he thought i hadnt checked. It was fine though. He still took the parcel.
Very good, very quickly
Purchase process was pretty straight forward. Parcel was collected by Parcel Force on Monday. Processed in UK and then sent on its way to USA (2-3 day service). End up being a 4 day service into the USA. Couldnt track the shipment using Parcel Monkey. Had to contact customer service via chat who simply provided a POD for the collection part of the service and was unable to provide DHL tracking details for 24 hours. Chat service was pretty unhelpful. Package arrived with some damage.
