Import restrictions

If an item is subject to import restrictions, it means that provisions must be met before it will be released from customs in the destination country, territory or region.

We recommend you confirm import restrictions with local authorities before posting:

Myanmar requires an import permit for many goods. Before posting any item, senders should confirm that the addressee has any necessary permit. Senders should determine import restrictions from Myanmar authorities before posting any item other than letters.

Myanmar reserves the right not to accept insured items containing valuable articles such as currency notes, cheques, securities payable to the bearer, items representing monetary value and generally speaking negotiable instruments.
