All travellers

COVID-19 rules and requirements can change at short notice. Confirmation should be sought from the relevant Myanmar Embassy or Consulate well in advance of your departure.

Insurance

All visitors to Myanmar need to purchase COVID-19 medical insurance from Myanma Insurance. This is required regardless of any other insurance cover you may have.

Diplomats, UN officials and their family members do not need to purchase Myanma Insurance and can instead show proof of health insurance from their countries of origin.

Data collection

All arrivals will need to complete a Health Declaration Form when they arrive, which should be provided by the airline or the airport authorities.

Testing on arrival

You will be expected to take a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Diagnostic Test at the airport, regardless of your vaccination status. You should bring 15,000 MMK with you or be prepared to convert cash at one of the exchange counters.

If the test result is negative, you will be free to leave. Travellers who display symptoms or test positive will be isolated and taken to a hospital or hotel designated by the Ministry of Health at their own expense.

This is in addition to the test you need to take 48 hours before your arrival. Which test you can take depends on if you are fully vaccinated or not.

If you are fully vaccinated

You will be required to present proof that you were fully vaccinated at least 14 days before your arrival in Myanmar with an accepted vaccine.

The following vaccines are accepted by the Myanmar authorities:

  • CoronaVac (Sinovac Biotech Ltd)
  • AstraZeneca or Covishield (AstraZeneca & University of Oxford/ SK BioScience (Korea) / Siam BioScience / Serum Institute of India (SII))
  • Pfizer – BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine or Comirnaty (Pfizer Inc & BioNTech)
  • Janssen or Johnson & Johnson (Janssen Pharmaceuticals Companies of Johnson and Johnson
  • Modema (ModemaTX, Inc.)
  • Sinopharm or COVILO or BIBP-CorV (Beijing Institute of Biological Products Co. Ltd)
  • Sputnik V (Gam-COVID-Vac) (Gamaleya National Research Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology)
  • Sputnik Light (Gamaleya National Research Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology)
  • Covaxin by Bharat Biotech
  • Myancopharm by Ministry of Industry, Myanmar
  • Nuvaxovid (NVX-CoV2373) (Novavax Co. Ltd)
  • Covovax (Serum Institute of India Pvt Ltd)
  • CorBEvax (Biological E Limited)

You should arrange to take a private test in order to facilitate your travel to another country.

If you are not fully vaccinated

You should present proof of a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR test, taken no more than 48 hours before your arrival in Myanmar.

You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.

Testing positive

If you test positive for COVID-19, you will be immediately isolated and taken to a medical facility. Foreign nationals are expected to pay the medical costs and other costs related to isolation and treatment in the designated health facilities.

If hospitalised with coronavirus, patients are obliged to use a government facility even if they have private insurance. Patients in government hospitals are generally expected to make their own arrangements for bringing in food and other essential supplies. Lone travellers will not be allowed out of isolation to buy food or make phone calls.

If you have not been fully vaccinated more than 14 days prior to departure, and if you are arriving by a relief flight, you will be subject to a 5 day hotel quarantine on arrival in Myanmar. You will be tested for COVID-19 by RT-PCR twice.

Children and young people

Children under 12 years old are exempted from the requirement to present proof they have recovered from COVID-19, if they travel with fully vaccinated parents or guardians.

If they travel with fully vaccinated parents or guardians, children under 6 years old are exempted from the requirement to present laboratory evidence of absence of COVID-19 infection (RT- PCR) issued no more than 72 hours prior to arrival to Myanmar.
