Just to add to @tinkicker's excellent and comprehensive response, Madagascar can be extremely particular about some types of paperwork if the mood strikes them. They have been known to demand things like original signature of captain on General Declarations (usually agent signature/company stamp is acceptable), final AWB copies to be certified by Customs for purpose of calculating ACM cargo royalties/fees prior to aircraft departure, crew to be issued "temporary visas" if the flight number changes even if they don't disembark, etc.. depending on who is on duty and whether his coffee was cold this morning. Never done two flights to Madagascar which went the same way and everything works on island time.
