Malawi and Britain share a long history dating as far back as the 1800s when the British Missionaries came to Malawi.  For 73 years from 1891 to 1964, Nyasaland (Malawi) was a British Protectorate.

Upon her independence in 1964, Malawi and Britain established diplomatic relations, and Malawi also became a member of the Commonwealth.  The relations have been cordial from the beginning, as characterized by exchange of State Visits by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who visited Malawi in July, 1979 and His Excellency Ngwazi Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda who reciprocated the visit to Britain in April, 1985. 



To date, relations between the two countries remain cordial
