Myanmar nationals in Russia must pay income tax before accessing passport extension, consular services: ME

The Myanmar Embassy to the Russian Federation announced that it would provide passport extensions and other consular services to Myanmar nationals working in the Russian Federation only after they paid income tax.
The announcement said that as of 7 February 2024, the Myanmar Embassy in Moscow would levy an income tax equivalent to two per cent of earnings calculated from 1 October 2023 for Myanmar nationals working in the Russian Federation. It said that passport extension and other consular services would be provided for only those who paid income tax.
The Ministry of Planning and Finance said in its announcement No 79/2023 dated 22 November 2023 that Myanmar nationals working abroad will pay income tax on their foreign currency earnings as of 1 October 2023.
Ultimately, paying income tax at Myanmar embassies or consulate general in overseas countries where they have been living means Myanmar nationals are assisting the country on their own in people’s supportive works such as education, health, and transportation projects. Besides, for buying real estate and vehicles in the mother country, Myanmar expats are also entitled to enjoy the amount they paid as a means of income by showing a certificate of monthly income tax payment. Still, it said they are not liable for income tax equivalent to the proven amount.
Those who would pay income tax can visit the Internal Revenue Department’s website to learn about the monthly tax calculation method in the PAYE Tax Calculator in advance.
To learn about the monthly income tax payment, they can contact the Myanmar Embassy via email at [email protected] and phone numbers +7(495)6915684 and +7(495)6915614, the Myanmar Embassy in Moscow announced. — MT/ZS/ED
