U.S. Passport Processing: Due to the closure of passport printing centers in the U.S., we cannot process routine passport applications at this time. For U.S. citizens in Burma facing emergencies, we can issue emergency passports. If you need to apply for an emergency passport, please visit this website for more information: https://mm.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/passports/
U.S. Treasury Checks: We recently received about 25 U.S. treasury checks and notified the recipients of their arrival. If you are not registered in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), then we do not have your contact information and cannot notify you. When we receive more checks, we will notify those recipients as well. If you have a question about your economic impact payment, please visit the IRS’ website here: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments. Enroll in STEP here: http://step.state.gov.
Visa Extensions: If you have questions about extending your Burmese visa, please inquire directly with your district immigration office. If Immigration requires an Embassy recommendation letter to extend your visa, please visit our website to make an appointment for a notarial service: https://mm.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/notary-services/
