Customs and Restrictions

Customs

Theoretically, tourists who have brought foreign currencies in excess of US $2,000 are required to declare. You might want to declare your still/video cameras, computer, jewelries, and electronic goods so that you can officially claim of your lost or theft during your trip although it is hardly happens.

Since Myanmar is opening up widely and trying to escalate the country’s tourism, entering Myanmar from Yangon Intl’ Airport is never been easier before. The new international airport has been come into full operation from the first quarter of 2007. Myanmar authorities still might have a huge caution on the national security and the terrorism; but now it is possible to bring your laptop computer or other digital equipments such as still/video cameras, music players, palmtops etc. You may also bring your mobile phones for taking photos using the built-in camera or for listening to the music but not for communication since it will not be working here as Myanmar doesn’t allowed international roaming. Additionally, you can bring two cartons of cigarettes, 100 cigars, 500ml of perfume, and two bots. of liquor. In most cases, it is more convenient for both parties if you check “nothing to declare” box on your form, take the “Green Channel” and head for the arrival lounge.
