National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
We currently advise that all New Zealanders do not travel overseas at this time due to the outbreak of COVID-19, associated health risks and widespread travel restrictions. The global situation remains complex and rapidly changing. International travel can be complicated with fewer international flights available and disruptions to transit routes and hubs. Any destination could experience a sudden increase in cases of COVID-19 and a heightened risk to travellers of contracting the virus. Strict health measures and movement restrictions could be imposed suddenly. Should you decide to travel despite our advice, be prepared to remain overseas longer than you intended. You should also be aware that your travel insurance may not cover travel disruption or medical expenses. Managed Isolation and Quarantine in New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand must undertake 14 days of government-provided managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ). Detailed information about MIQ requirements in New Zealand can be found at www.miq.govt.nz. Pre-departure testing requirements for travellers to New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand (excluding those from Antarctica, Australia and most Pacific Islands) must show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result before departure. Detailed information about pre-departure testing requirements can be found on the Unite Against Covid-19 website here. We recognise that some New Zealanders do continue to live and travel overseas. We continue to provide destination-specific advice about other safety and security risks below.

Brief summary:
Alle rejser – også erhvervsrejser – frarådes til Myanmar pga. sikkerhedssituationen. Der er en meget høj sikkerhedsrisiko i landet, som er præget af en række væbnede konflikter. Hvis du vælger at rejse, bør du søge professionel rådgivning. Danskere i Myanmar opfordres til at forlade landet snarest muligt pga. sikkerhedssituationen, og mens der stadig er kommercielle fly ud af landet. Hvis du vælger at blive i Myanmar, så hold dig mest muligt på din bopæl og vær opmærksom på dine omgivelser, hvis du færdes ude. Kontakt ambassaden hvis du har brug for vejledning ift. at komme ud af landet. Coronavirus/COVID-19 Vi fraråder ligeledes alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Myanmar pga. COVID-19. Du bør læse om indrejserestriktioner, karantæne- og testkrav hos den danske ambassade i Yangon, da der kan være krav om fx COVID-19 test, vaccinedokumentation, udfyldning af formularer el.lign. Du kan læse mere om, hvordan du skal forholde dig ift. test og isolation, når du kommer hjem fra en udenlandsrejse på coronasmitte.dk. Du kan få svar på ofte stillede spørgsmål her.

Andre sikkerhedsrisici Hvis du rejser til Myanmar, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed. Vi fraråder alle rejser til den centrale og nordlige del af delstaten Rakhine pga. væbnede sammenstød mellem militæret og lokale væbnede grupper. Sammenstød kan også ske i tempelområderne i Mrauk-U. Der er en meget høj sikkerhedsrisiko.  Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til delstaten Kachin og det nordlige Shan pga. risiko for generelle uroligheder og væbnet konflikt. Det samme gælder Paletwa township i den sydlige del af Chin-staten. I disse områder er der ofte voldelige sammenstød mellem væbnede grupper og mellem disse og lokale sikkerhedsmyndigheder og/eller generel uro og spændinger. Du kan risikere at blive fanget i en krydsild, i vejspærringer, eller du kan på anden måde blive ufrivilligt inddraget. Sikkerhedsrisiciene er så alvorlige, at du bør have helt særlige grunde til at besøge områderne. Vi fraråder også alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til den øvrige del af delstaten Rakhine undtagen turistområdet i Ngapali beach.

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
