The request for a visa extension of the expatriates in Myanmar will not be approved if the copies of the taxpayers’ companies are found inaccurate or falsified, according to the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration (DICA). At present, the companies need to apply for the recommendations for visa extension via DICA’s website_ https://visaonline.dica.gov.mm. DICA found that some companies are showing false or falsified documents of tax payment with the Internal Revenue Department, according to DICA.
Therefore, DICA will not approve the recommendations for a visa extension of the expatriates in Myanmar if they found the false or falsified documents of the company. The online platform aims to reduce opportunities for dishonesty in applying for the visa extension. It needs to check the lists of the recommended companies for the visa, enabling easy access to the data of the expatriates and stay period to reduce paperwork as well as to ensure social distancing and process facilitation, he stated.
