Reliable Information about living and working in Myanmar

Relocating to and living in Myanmar necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Myanmarese and Burmese expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Myanmar: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Myanmarese and Burmese income tax law?ʺ, ʺWhich Western clothing sizes are readily available in Yangoon?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Yangon?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Myanmarese and Burmese residence permit for my wife?ʺ

Looking for so much information on working and living in Myanmar is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time. The InterNations Expat Guide for Myanmar is designed to help you and offers trusted information on all issues of interest to expats living in Myanmar. Various topics are covered in our Myanmar Expat Guide from health-care, to restaurants & nightlife or food and shopping, up to travel & accommodation. Such characteristic questions that concern expat life abroad as ʺHas the volatile political climate stabilized again?ʺ will no more remain open.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Myanmar. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on living in Denmark or working in Canada.
