Myanmar's Yangon International Airport reopens after two-year suspension
Myanmar reopened Yangon International Airport (RGN) on April 17, 2022, after suspending operations for more than two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic
The Southeast Asian country suspended commercial flights in March 2020 in an effort to curb COVID-19 infections. April 17, 2022, the day of the airport’s reopening, also coincided with the Burmese New Year festival, ‘Thingyan’.
Inbound passengers to RGN need to present proof of vaccination with a Ministry of Health-approved vaccine and a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR report. Meanwhile, all foreign travelers must submit COVID-19 medical insurance purchased from Myanmar Insurance.
All incoming travelers must also wait at designated hotels for the RT-PCR test result expected to be sent by the Health Ministry in 24 hours.
