Burma Country informationAbout Burma
British politics is to relate to Burma and not "Myanmar".
In 1989, the present government renamed Myanmar. Burma's Burmese democratization movements prefer the Burmese model because they do not respect the illegitimacy of the non-elected army regimes and thus their right to rename the country's name. We have drew notice of the opinions of Burma's political leadership, Aung San Suu Kyi included, who have in the past been arguing that Burma's tourist industry should be frustrated by the financial advantages it is bringing to the rimen.
Myanmar tourist officers are involved in the EU banning Burma from travelling. We encourage everyone who is considering to visit Burma on vacation to examine thoroughly whether his action contributes to the assistance of the Burma state.

Information on these pages should be used for research into medical hazards and for information on how to prepare your trip. Travelers should make an appointement with their GP's office or hospital at least four to six months before departure. We recommend an early visit for people with already present illness.
Whilst most travelers have a wholesome and secure journey, there are some hazards that are of relevance to all travelers. This includes transport and other injuries, STIs, insect- and tick-borne illnesses, disease caused by polluted foods and drinking waters, and extreme temperatures. Travelers should take out appropriate medical cover.
Below is a helpful resource guide, which includes tips on how to help mitigate the risks of certain medical conditions. Travelers should be up to date on the UK suggested immunisation and refresher programmes. Examples of these immunizations included measles-mumps-robella (MMR) immunization and diphtheria-tetanus-polio inoculation. Anyone who is at higher risks of contracting an infection due to their work, lifestyles or certain medical conditions should be kept up to date with supplementary suggested inoculants.
The following information should be considered with care, as the certification needs may only be applicable to certain travelers. Travelers should seek further information from their doctor if necessary. The danger of catarrhal fevers does not exist in Germany, but there is an obligation to obtain a certification. International Health Regulations require a vaccine to be issued for persons over the age of one who come from those who are at danger of transmitting the disease and for persons who have traveled for more than 12 consecutive or consecutive nights through an international airports with the danger of transmitting the disease.
Consequently, a current health certificates presented by incoming passengers cannot be refused on the ground that more than 10 years have elapsed since the entry into force of the inoculation as indicated on the certificates and that no refresher or re-vaccination is necessary. Check the WHO country shortlist of those at increased risks of transmitting jaundice.
This section is designed to be used by most travelers who visit the Philippines. For information on these inoculants, click on the red arrows. A hepatitis is a virus infected by infected foods and drinking cold or by face-to-face exposure to an infected ailment. Persons at higher risks are travelers who visit loved ones, long-term travelers and people who visit areas with bad hygiene.
Everyone should take cares about their own sanitation, groceries and drinking wells. Since the hepatitis A immunization is well tolerable and provides permanent vaccination, it is highly recommendable for all previously unimmunized people. Poliomyelitis is infectious, and it is spread by one of three kinds of poliovirus, as well as contamination of foods and drink. Earlier infections with one kind of poliovirus do not provide effective prevention against other kinds of the disease.
Persons at higher risks are travelers who visit loved ones, people in close proximity to an affected individual, long-term travelers and people who visit areas with bad hygienic conditions. Eliminated from poliomyelitis, but at high risk of outbreak. Travelers should take responsibility for their own health, nutrition and drinking wells. Travelers should all have been on a UK scheduled poliovaccine course.
Refresher dosage of a poliovaccine is suggested for those who have not been given a dosage in the last 10 years. Travelers should thoroughly wash all sores and consult a suitable doctor. Travelers should have attended a UK scheduled initial immunization course. When traveling to a destination where healthcare institutions may be restricted, a refreshing dosage of a supplement of tetanus-containing immunization is advised if the last dosage is more than 10 years ago, even if five dosages of immunization were previously administered.
You can find country-specific information on healthcare institutions in the "Health" section of the FCO International Trips Advisory website. Typhus is a bacteria infectious disease caused by contamination of foods and drink. Persons at higher risks are travelers who visit loved ones, people who come into touch with an affected individual, infants, long-term travelers and people who visit areas with bad hygiene.
Everyone should take cares about their own sanitation, groceries and drinking wells. There are both orally and injectably administered typhus shots available and suggested for high-risk individuals (see above). Inoculations may be taken into consideration for other travelers. Supplementary vaccine in this section is suggested for some travelers who visit this area. To find out when these inoculants are available, click on the arrows.
It is a bacteria infestation caused by infected foods and drink. For most travelers, the risks are low. Everyone should take cares about their own sanitation, groceries and drinking wells. Protect yourself with this orally available inoculant for those whose activity or previous health record exposes you to an elevated level of HIV. These include: those who go to areas with an outbreak of viral disease that have restricted accessibility to clean drinking waters and health services those for whom vaccinations are seen as potentially useful.
The hepatitis B disease is a contagious disease caused by viruses; it is spread by contacting contaminated human hematology. Parents with the disease can also pass the disease on to their newborn. Travelers should refrain from coming into direct physical and emotional contact either with their own personal blood or fluids. These include: avoidance of non-protected sex, refraining from splitting pins or other injectors, adherence to general precautionary measures when working in a medical/dental/high hazard area.
The vaccine could be envisaged for all travelers and is suggested for those whose activity or previous experience exposes them to an elevated level of concern, including: those who may have unsafe sexual intercourse, those who may be subjected to needle contamination by injected drugs, those who may be subjected to the effects of their work on human beings (e.g. healthcare workers).
Persons who may be subjected to needle contamination as a consequence of treatment by a doctor or dentist, e.g. Persons with already present diseases and persons who travel abroad for health treatment, as well as persons wishing to undergo kidney dialysis abroad, persons taking part in sport of contacts, etc. Family adoptions of the child from this state.
E is a virus infectious disease spread to human beings by gnats (mainly swine and birds) that hatch in typical paddies, wetlands and marshlands. There is an elevated level of exposure for passengers who spend a months or more during the transfer period, especially when travelling in remote areas with paddies and marshlands.
Travelers on short journeys (usually less than a month) or journeys that take place outside prime time and those that limit their visit to city areas are generally classified as very low-risk. YU is in this land. Seldom cases of travelers outside these periods are recorded.
Travelers should especially take care to prevent gnat stings at twilight. The vaccine is suggested for those whose activity exposes them to an elevated hazard (see above). Immunization could be envisaged for people on short journeys if the risks are deemed adequate, e.g. for people living in areas where mosquitoes breed, such as paddy or wetlands, or porcine breeding areas.
Ragweed is a virus infestation that is usually transferred to an open cut or mucosa ( "eye, nostrils or mouth") via a sting, scratches or licking stone after exposure to the spittle of an affected beast. Bamboos are an important infectious disease in some parts of the globe.
Occupational risks are enhanced by certain types of activity and length of time spent (see below). Childrens are at higher risks because they are less likely to prevent animal touch and are less likely to detect a sting, scratches or leak. Ragweed has been recorded in pets and game in this state.
Travelers should refrain from contacting all pets. Vaccination prior to exposures is suggested for travelers at higher risks due to their activity, e.g.: persons at hazard due to their work (e.g. lab personnel working with the vaccine viruses, persons working with pets or healthcare personnel attending to potentially contaminated patients); persons traveling to areas where there are restrictions on postoperative and healthcare provision; persons who plan high-risk activity such as walking or biking; long-term travelers (more than one month).
Tuberculosis is a bacteria infections most often caused by inhalation of breath drops from an infected individual. Travelers should refrain from intimate contacts with people known to have infective pulse (lung) tuberculosis. Persons at work ( "at risk", e.g. in health care) should take appropriate precautionary measures to monitor them. The present guidelines recommend a BCG inoculant for persons at higher risks of development of a serious illness and/or exposition to tuberculosis infections, e.g. if the mean number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants per year is greater than or the same as 40.
The BCG supplement is also suggested to travelers for: non-vaccinated infants under 16 who will be living in this state for more than 3 mo. Non-vaccinated, tuberculosis dermal tests are recommendable for some younger infants and young people under the age of 35 who are at greater danger from their work, such as health care professionals, jail personnel and veterinarians.
Healthcare personnel can be inoculated over 35 years after a thorough evaluation of the risks. BCG is administered only once, boost dosages are not suggested. A mosquito that feeds mainly between twilight and daybreak transmits malaria. Further signs may be chills and chills, headaches, sickness, and soreness.
Rapid diagnostics and therapy are necessary as individuals with the disease can worsen rapidly. The ones who have a higher malarial infection or serious complication from the disease are expecting mothers, babies and young babies, the older generation, travelers who do not have a working splenic system, and those who visit close mates. Travelers should adhere to an ABCD guideline on prophylaxis against malaria: Risks Consciousness - The risks depend on the place, duration of the trip, length of the trip, activity and kind of shelter.
Preventing bites - Travellers should take steps to avoid gnat bites. Chemprophylaxis - Take antimalarial ("malaria prophylaxis" tablets) if it is appropriate for the area (see below). While no antimalaria drugs are 100% efficacious, taking them in conjunction with insect repellent treatment provides significant anti-malarial benefits. Diagnostics - Travellers who have developed a temperature of 38°C or higher more more than one weeks after their stay in a high-risk area or who show signs of the disease within one year of their arrival should be treated immediately.
Stand-by emergencies may be envisaged for those going to isolated areas with restricted health care coverage. Myanmar has a low incidence of malaria: we recommend that you be aware of the risks and avoid biting. Anti-malarial drugs may be contraindicated in rare cases for travelers with an increased malarial risks (e.g. long-term travelers who visit close family members and friends) or with serious malarial related problems (e.g. older people (over 70 years), immunocompromised people, people with complicated comorbidities, maternity, babies and young children).
Travelers with a missing or poorly performing splenic system should be discouraged from travelling to areas at risks of contracting the disease, but where travelling is indispensable, strict prevention of biting and control of the disease should be recommended. It is up to the travelling healthcare professional and the traveler to make the definitive decisions as to whether or not to seek advice on the disease, based on an individually assessed risks.
A number of hazards are of relevance to all passengers, regardless of their destinations. This includes, for example, transport and other incidents, insect- or tick-borne illnesses, disease caused by infected foods and drinking waters, sexual transmission infection or problems related to hot or cold. However, it is important to bear in mind that there is a high risk of infection. Certain supplementary risk (which may exist in whole or in part in this country) is listed below and in alphabetical order.
There' s a danger of mountain sickness if you travel to targets 2,500m or more. The most important risks are the height obtained, the climbing speed and the sleep height. The fast climb without a familiarisation phase increases the traveler's risks. In this land there is a difference in height of more than 2,500 m.
Travelers should stay a few nights at an altitude below 3,000 meters. If possible, travelers should try to stay away from heights below 1,200 to over 3,500 metres in a full working week. Travelers should not increase their bed height by more than 500 metres per night and plan for a resting holiday (at the same height) every three to four workdays.
Travelers who experience AMS ( "headache, tiredness, anorexia, sickness and insomnia ") should refrain from any further ascend. It is a virus infected by mosquitos that mainly live between twilight and night. Heavy dengue is uncommon among travelers. Any travelers to the dengue areas are at stake. There' s a danger of Dengue in this land.
Travelers should especially take care to keep away from gnat stings between twilight and night. Currently there are no drugs or vaccinations for travelers to stop the disease. The Zika Viruses (ZIKV) is a type of infectious disease caused by mosquitos that mainly live between twilight and night. There is a modest level of Zika disease susceptibility in this state.
There are no detailed information on certain affected areas in this state. Travelers should especially take care to keep away from gnat stings between twilight and night. No vaccinations or drugs are available to stop a ZIKV infections. We recommend that expectant mothers who plan to visit areas at low susceptibility to ZIKV should postpone the trip until after they have become pregger.
Females should refrain from becoming pregant during travel and 8 week after they have left an area with ZIKV-activity or 8 week after the last possible ZIKV-exposure. Married people should take the instructions to prevent Zika from being transmitted sexually and should not conceive while traveling and for up to 6 month after returning.
When a female shows signs consistent with a ZIKV infections, it is advised that she does not become pregant for another 8-week time. If you have been to this state during pregnancy or become expectant within 8 week of departure or within 8 week of the last possible ZIKV exposition, you should ask your family doctor, birth attendant or midwife for help, even if you were not ill.
