Invest in Malawi - One Stop Shop Centre (OSSC)

The One Stop Service Centre will provide streamlined services to foreign and local investors aimed at facilitating the integration of Malawi in the global value chains. OSSC will be domiciled at the Malawi Investment and Trade Centre at Aquarius House opposite Reserve Bank of Malawi in City Centre, Lilongwe.

Using approved streamlined processes and procedures, the OSSC will offer services for inavestment approvals, permits and registration certificates such as Investment Certification, Business Residence Permits, Temporary Employment Permits, Investment Land Allotment and Fiscal Incentives. This will help to improve the ease of doing business by greatly increasing the efficiency with which the public sector delivers services to the private sector and make Malawi a better investment destination. All this is being done to place the private sector in its rightful place, that of being the engine of growth and development for our country. 

The OSSC is an exciting addition to investment facilitation which will tremendously reduce the time of processing business related permits under one roof down to an average of 5 days. Government has already appointed Senior Officers from the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA); the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Planning (MoLHUP); the Immigration Department; the Registrar of Companies and Malawi Investment and Trade Centre (MITC) who have started working at the OSSC at Aquarius House in Lilongwe from 1st September 2014.
