Myanmar has an overall moderate threat environment characterised by ethnic insurgencies and unrest primarily in the northern and western regions such as Chin State, Kachin State, Karen State, Mon State, Rakhine State as well as Shan State. The security risk is particularly high in Rakhine state where significant racial riots linked to anti-Muslim sentiments have occurred and insurgent attacks are ongoing since 2017. Terrorist attacks including bombings have targeted civilians, however recent incidents have occurred largely in areas where insurgencies are active and have caused minimal damage. While road conditions in major urban centres are decent, rural travel can be hazardous. Myanmar’s climate is also an area of concern; the country regularly experiences tropical storms and flooding. The government's ability to adequately respond to natural hazards is limited, while there is the possibility that it might actively restrict international relief efforts. 

Hälsa, sjukdomar och vaccination

Travellers are recommended to consult a travel health specialist at least 4-8 weeks before departing to Myanmar. It is also advisable to get the following vaccinations: Hepatitis A & B, Typhoid, Rabies, Polio, Japanese Encephalitis and Routine if you are not up to date with shots such as measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) and diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus (DPT).

Certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required if arriving from a country where the disease is present.

There are varying malaria risk areas in Myanmar. The cities of Yangon and Mandalay have a low risk, with simple precautions against mosquito bites adequate. Areas considered high risk are Karen, Chin, Kachin, Kayah, Mon, Rakhine, and Shan States.

To reduce the risk of malaria infection travellers are strongly advised to acquire one of the following antimalarial drugs: Mefloquine (Lariam), Atovaquone/Proguanil (Malarone), or Doxycycline is recommended for all rural areas at altitudes below 1,000m. Mefloquine is not effective in eastern Myanmar (Shan, Kayah and Kayin). Chloroquine is not an effective antimalarial drug in Myanmar and should not be taken.

Water that has not been boiled or filtered should not be drunk. Do not eat unpeeled fruits and raw vegetables, meat and fish. Insect protection measures such as wearing long sleeves, pants, hats and shoes and applying insect repellents to exposed skin should be observed especially in rural areas.

Medical treatment may be obtained in Yangon or Mandalay; beyond these, medical care may be difficult to find, if not unavailable. Most medical facilities are inadequate. Doctors usually require up-front cash payments prior to giving out treatment. Serious illness or injury may require emergency medical evacuation to another country with better-equipped facilities.  Travellers are advised to obtain a comprehensive medical insurance that includes air evacuation.

Many foreign drugs for sale have either been smuggled into the country or are counterfeits and unfit for use. Travellers should bring with them enough personal supply for the duration of their stay.


Travellers must have a valid passport for six months beyond the date of entry. Security checkpoints are common outside tourist areas and travellers may be subject to an identification check.

Travellers that arrive via the border crossings at Muse (Shan state) or Tamu (Chin state), must leave Myanmar via the same crossing.


Visas are required for entry into Myanmar.

Tourist visas on arrival can be applied for through an eVisa program removing the need to apply at an embassy. The eVisas are generally issued within a few days and visitors will be required to bring with them their approval letter upon arrival at Yangon International Airport or Mandalay International Airport. To avoid problems with the immigration officers, it is advisable for travellers to use the same port of entry to enter and exit Myanmar.

Tourist visas are valid for 28 days, while business visas are valid for three months from date of issue for stays of 10 weeks. Business visa applicants must have a letter from the employer explaining nature and duration of business trip and letter of invitation from the host company in Myanmar to accompany their application form.

A visa-on-arrival program for business travellers is place. A formal letter of invitation is still required.

Travellers arriving from countries where yellow fever is present are required to provide proof of yellow fever vaccination.
