Safety and Security

Do not travel.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Myanmar will only allow visitors through Yangon, Mandalay or Naypyitaw international airport. If you’ve travelled to or transited through a COVID-19 affected country in the last 14 days you may be denied entry or quarantined. The standard of medical facilities is extremely limited, particularly outside Yangon. If despite our current advice you decide to travel overseas, monitor your health closely and follow the advice of local authorities. We now advise you to: Do not travel to Myanmar.
