‘Avoid Non-Essential Travel’: India’s Travel Advisory For Nationals In Myanmar Amid Escalating 

New Delhi: Amid ongoing violence between anti-junta groups and government forces in Myanmar, India on Tuesday released an advisory where it advised its nationals to refrain from visiting the neighbouring country.

It also advised Indians living in Myanmar to register themselves with the Embassy of India in Yangon.

Sharing the advisory on platform X, MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi advised Indian nationals in Myanmar to avoid any non-essential travel. 

“In view of the evolving security situation in Myanmar, all Indian nationals are advised to avoid non-essential travel. Those already living in Myanmar are advised to take precautions and avoid travel to the regions affected by violence,” the advisory read.

Since the current conflict in Myanmar started in 2021, a large number of citizens from the neighbouring country have taken refuge in India. According to the UN, the intensified fighting in Myanmar since last month has displaced about 90,000 people, reported PTI.
