Myanmar

We’ve reviewed our advice for Myanmar. We continue to advise you ‘do not travel’ to Myanmar due to ongoing civil unrest and armed conflict. If it’s safe to do so, leave Myanmar via commercial airline. Remain aware of the security environment at all times. Exercise caution and monitor media closely. Avoid all public gatherings, protests and areas of known and possible unrest. Violence, including explosions and attacks, can occur anywhere and anytime, including in Yangon. The main targets have been infrastructure, police and military vehicles, and security and administrative personnel. However, there have been civilian targets (including schools, petrol stations, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and shopping malls). Exercise caution in townships under martial law. A curfew remains in place. There have been widespread detentions, including of foreigners. Australians may be at risk of arbitrary detention.

We continue to advise:

Do not travel to Myanmar due to ongoing civil unrest and armed conflict.
