U.S. imposes visa restrictions on Myanmar, Laos
United States imposes visas on Myanmar (also known as Burma) and Laos because they do not allow their citizens to be deported by the US. "Myanmar and Laos have refused or unduly delay the acceptance of their citizens who have left the United States," the Department of Homeland Security said in a press communiqué.
On Tuesday, the Foreign Ministry ordered consulates in both states to introduce limits on the use of certain types of permits. BURMA: Closure of the "issuance of all B 1 (work) and B 2 (travel) non-immigrant visa for present officers at Director-General and beyond by the Burmese Ministries of Labour, Immigration and Population (MOLIP) and Interior (MOHA) and their immediate families, with certain exemptions".
DISCLAIMER: The "issue of all non-immigrant Schengen permits for present civil servants at Director-General and beyond by the Laotian Ministry of Public Security (MPS) and their immediate family members; and all A3 and G5 permits (diplomats and staff of various organisations ) to persons working for Laotian authorities, with certain exemptions.
Myanmar's US embassador said the penalties were confusing. VOA Burmesen was informed by U Aung Lin that his government had fully collaborated with US officers to take back the migrants who wanted to expel the US. Myanmar, he said, had issued transit papers to 30 out of 31 migrants who wanted to expel the US, and most had reached Myanmar.
Myanmar will keep cooperating, he said. Myanmar and Laos are both on the US rebellious countries-listing. The DHS says it cannot conclude the expulsion procedure without a passport confirming your identification and your nationalities. "Myanmar and Laos have not introduced repetitive procedures for the issuance of passports to their citizens who have been expelled from the United States," DHS said.
"That is why the ICE was called upon to free Myanmar and Laos citizens in the United States, some with serious penalties.
