The Rapid Diagnostic Test-RDT is underway for the commercial flight passengers.

As the COVID-19 infection/death rates decline in most the world countries, the COVID-19 restrictions have been eased on those who are fully vaccinated.
Myanmar also allowed the resumption of commercial flights starting 17-4-2022 and eased the health restrictions step by step to improve international tourism due to the declining infection rate and high COVID-19 vaccine coverage in the country.
The Yangon International Airport took COVID tests using RT-PCR for the passengers following 24 hours waiting time system, and the results showed decreasing rate.
For further easing of health rules for commercial flight passengers, the Public Health and Health Services Departments and Airport Health Unit started using the COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) at Yangon International Airport beginning 1 May on Myanmar citizens who must have RT-PCR negative test results received within 72 hours before they arrive in Myanmar, COVID-19 vaccination certificates recognized by the Ministry of Health, Health Declaration, and tourists who must have health insurance of the Myanma Insurance in addition to these documents.
There were 850 passengers on eight commercial flights on 1 May, and none of them was positive after their RDT tests.
The commercial flight passengers to Yangon International Airport can conduct their COVID-19 tests in line with the health rules within one or two hours at a low cost, and they can make their trip in a short while.
A total of 7,550 passengers entered the country by 92 flights between 17-4-2022 and 1-5-2022, and the government also operated relief flights for the citizens stranded in foreign countries. — MNA
