Myanmar has suspended all types of visas and visa exemption services on March 28 and now has extended the entry restriction measures until June 1 to continue its effective response measures to reduce the importation and spread of the COVID-19.
However, in case of urgent official missions or compelling reasons, foreign nationals, including diplomats and United Nations officials, who wish to travel to Myanmar by available relief or special flights can contact the nearest Myanmar Mission for a possible exception with regard to certain visa restrictions, according to the announcement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today.
But, all visitors must abide by existing directives issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports, relating to the prevention and control of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The directives issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports require people, both nationals and foreigners, entering the country to undergo 21 days hotel quarantines and 7 days home quarantine and foreign nationals need to provide health certificates issued 72 hours before boarding on the plane by approved clinic or hospital.
The country has suspended all international flights except relief flights to bring back its citizens stranded in other countries.
