THE EMBASSY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN RANGOON IS TRANSMITTING THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION THROUGH THE AMERICAN LIAISON NETWORK AS A PUBLIC SERVICE TO U.S. CITIZENS IN BURMA. PLEASE DISSEMINATE THIS MESSAGE TO ALL U.S. CITIZENS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION OR NEIGHBORHOOD.
October 29, 2021
The Embassy advises Americans that the CDC has updated their COVID-19 requirements for entry into the United States for American citizens and Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs). Effective November 8, unvaccinated American and LPR travelers must provide a negative COVID-19 test within one calendar day of traveling or documentation of recovery in the past 90 days. Vaccinated travelers must still provide a negative COVID-19 test within 3 calendar days of traveling, or documentation of recovery. U.S. citizen travelers who are younger than 2 years of age, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, will need to provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within three calendar days of departure or documentation of recovery in the past 90 days. All travelers to the United States by air must attest to both their vaccination and testing status. Information on COVID-19 testing sites, including those facilities that offer same-day PCR testing, is available at our website: COVID-19 Information.
Please note: Pun Hlaing Hospital has announced a COVID-19 vaccination program and is prepared to begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to the public in early December. We understand the total cost for two doses is set at 95,000 kyat, non-refundable and with full payment required up front. The second dose will be administered approximately 30 days after the first dose. American citizens interested in participating in Pun Hlaing’s vaccination program may register now and should contact Pun Hlaing hospital directly. The Embassy is sharing this information with the American community as a courtesy but does not endorse or recommend any specific vaccination program in Burma.
