Burmese nationality law
Burma has a layered system of nationality (from the 1982 Nationality Act) depending on how its ancestors received it: Complete burghers are descendents of inhabitants who before 1823 were living in Burma or were births of families who were burghers at the moment of childbirth. Associated nationals are those who have obtained nationality under the Union Nationality Act of 1948.
Naturalised nationals are those who resided in Burma before 4 January 1948 and sought nationality after 1982. Myanmar does not recognise double nationality. Myanmar's nationality is immediately terminated by naturalisation in another state. By 2016, Myanmar's nationals had visa-free or visa-free entry into 42 counties and territories and ranked number 95 in the global rankings according to the Visas Restrictions Index.
