Myanmar to Resume International Flights in April After Two Years

  • Government allows foreign visitors’ entry from April 17
  • Nation to locally produce 10m Covid vaccine doses soon

Myanmar’s military government on Friday lifted ban on foreign visitors from April 17 by allowing international passenger flights to operate as normal after suspension for over two years.

The Central Committee on Covid-19 Control led by military chief Min Aung Hlaing lifted all directives to prevent importation of coronavirus to the Southeast Asian country through air travel which became in effect from March 29, 2020. The junta cited “significant drop in new Covid cases and deaths” and said the lifting aimed to develop tourism sector and facilitate easy entry for foreigners.
