Burma (Myanmar) Public Announcement

Issued by U.S. State Department

Oct 25, 2007

This Public Announcement is to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and residing in Burma that political tension remains high in the country and that protests and a violent Burmese Government response could recur at any time.  U.S. citizens should defer non-essential travel to Burma.  This Public Announcement supersedes the Public Announcement dated September 26, 2007, and expires December 26, 2007.

The Burmese Government has ended the curfew it imposed in September 2007, but political tensions remain high.  U.S. citizens in Burma should avoid demonstrations and processions, as they could turn violent with little or no warning, as happened in September.  On September 27, a Japanese journalist was shot and killed in the Sule Pagoda downtown area during a demonstration.  The Embassy advises U.S. citizens not to photograph or video the military or police because doing so could be interpreted as provocative.  During the recent protests, authorities shot and, in some instances, killed demonstrators, used gunfire and tear gas against them, restricted their movements, and arrested many.  The Burmese Government has banned all gatherings of more than five people.

Given the fluidity of the current situation, the Department of State advises all U.S. citizens in Burma to monitor events closely, exercise discretion when moving about, and avoid large public gatherings, visible military presence, or areas cordoned off by security forces. For the latest security information, U.S. citizens living and traveling abroad should regularly monitor the current Worldwide Caution, Public Announcements, and Travel Warnings at the State Departments Bureau of Consular Affairs website:  http://travel.state.gov.  Security information also can be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the U.S. and Canada.  A toll line is available at 1-202-501-4444 for callers outside the U.S. and Canada.  These numbers are accessible from 8:00 a.m. To 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).

U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Burma are encouraged to register with the Department of State or the U.S. Embassy in Rangoon. Registration can be done on-line through the State Departments travel registration website https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs, or via the Embassys website http://burma.usembassy.gov.  The Burmese Government sporadically cuts internet service within Burma; U.S. citizens in Burma may register in person or by telephone if the internet is not available.  The U.S. Embassy is located at 110 University Ave, Kamayut Township, Rangoon.  The Embassy's phone numbers are (95-1) 650-006, 536-509, 535-756, and 538-037.  The consular sections extension is 4240, and email address is   The Embassys after-hours emergency numbers are (95-1) 650-006, 536-509, 535-756, and 538-037, all followed by extension 4014, and the after-hours mobile phone number is 09-512-4330.  The Embassy hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal and Burmese holidays.)
