Short stays (up to 90 days)



Lifting of COVID-19-related restrictions for entry into Germany since 11 June 2022:

All COVID-19-related restrictions for entry into Germany have preliminarily been lifted. Currently, travel from Myanmar to Germany will be permitted for all travel purposes (including tourism and visits). For entry into Germany no proof of vaccination, recovery or testing is required any longer.

Visas as required for entry into Germany may be applied for for all travel purposes. Due do expected higher demand, delays may occur in the processing of visa requests.


Myanmar citizens require a visa to enter Germany and the Schengen states for short term stays of up to 90 days.

The Embassy only issues visas to applicants living in Myanmar. Myanmar citizens living outside of Myanmar have to apply at the competent German mission in their country of residence.
