  • All CMP, construction, raw materials and manufacturing business are to be closed from 24th September until 7th October
  • Worker or staffs from Bank, petrol station, food retailer, meat factory, pharmacy and pharmaceutical factories, water supply and daily essentials products manufacturers are only exempt from this order
This Stay at Home order takes effect Monday, September 21st at 8 am until further notice.

How does this affect you if outside of Yangon and want to come back?

Entering into Yangon will is not a problem with the car. Just a fever check. However, being this is a “stay at home” order, every in and out into the townships and wards will be carefully watched so you might need to consider contact with the ward.
