If you are crossing at the main border between Tanzania and Malawi, it is a relatively straightforward process. Many nationalities do not need a visa to visit Malawi, and there is even a small bureau-de-change on the Malawi side of the border if you want some Kwacha (or want to change some excess back if you are leaving). There are no fees whatsoever for bringing a vehicle into Malawi.
