Myanmar extends entry restrictions until end-Nov


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has announced that it will extend the COVID-19 entry restrictions for travellers in the country until 30 November.
The suspension will be applied to the entry of all travellers, the issuance of all types of visas and visa exemptions services until the end of this month.
The statement said that the MOFA had issued temporary restrictions on the tourists visiting Myanmar on 1 October to implement more effective measures to prevent the spread of the pandemic.
Just like the previous announcements, foreign nationals, including diplomats and UN officials, who wish to travel to Myanmar by relief or special flights due to urgent official missions or compelling reasons, are urged to contact the nearest Myanmar mission for possible exceptions to certain visa restrictions.
The country has extended its entry ban due to the COVID-19 in Asia, in an effort to contain the spread of the virus within the country’s borders.
However, all travellers to Myanmar must abide by the COVID-19 prevention, control and treatment guidelines set by the Ministry of Health.
According to a release by the Ministry of Health, Myanmar reported 500,950 COVID-19 cases and 18,714 deaths till 1 November. — ACM/GNLM
