The Consulate General will warn the family in France in order to plan the measures to be taken. Medical repatriations: The regulation of the international civil aviation (ICAO) does not authorize transport, on the commercial lines, of people with contagious diseases. It is consequently impossible to organize, in case of flu complication or of another contagious disease, a medical evacuation by the airliner. Only the recourse to special flights, whose cost can exceed 10,000 Euros could be under consideration in this case.
The subscription of a repatriation insurance is thus more than ever recommended.

Various difficulties met with by compatriots led the Consulate General to draw up the present note of information which specifies the framework in which the protection of the French nationals in the event of arrest and imprisonment is exerted.
The limits of consular protection are fixed initially by the rules of the international law, which determines the conditions of exercise of the consular activity in a sovereign country, and in second place by the concept of individual and familial responsibility of any French citizen, for which the State cannot be substituted.
Residing in or visiting Madagascar, the French nationals are subjected to the legislation of the host country, whose application extends to all persons or institutions installed or circulating on the territory.
It is up to each one to obey the Malagasy law and habits and to be not engaged in activities which could shock our hosts.

A French national has the right to ask the local authorities to be able to communicate with the Consulate General. This one will intervene with them to attest that the interested party is under consular protection and to inquire, initially, the reason for the arrest.
