YANGON, 4 June 2020: Myanmar has extended its suspension of all travel visas until 15 June according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ latest announcement posted on its website 1 June.
The announcement extends the suspension of all visas including visa exemptions that were introduced in mid-March under a ruling that was due to expire 31 May.
The entry ban covers e-visas, visa-on-arrival and includes all nationalities that eligible for visa-free travel to Myanmar.
Earlier this week some airlines posted details of the flights’ schedules that suggested they would resume flights to Myanmar’s capital this month.
Myanmar National Airlines filed timetable details for flights to Hong Kong and Singapore this month, but that plan has now been shelved.
Airlines are keen to renew services to facilitate essential travel, repatriation flights and cargo.
Visas will undoubtedly be suspended another time, until at least June 30. No idea why Myanmar makes these announcements in the last minute and then only for 15 days at a time. Just decide month by month, as Thailand is doing.
