Embassy of the Republic of Singapore - Yangon

Travel Advisory for Northern Rakhine State, Myanmar [2 September 2017]

Violent clashes have taken place in Northern Rakhine State, Myanmar, and the security situation is tense. Singaporeans should avoid non-essential travel to the Maungdaw, Rathedaung and Buthidaung townships, and reconsider travel to other parts of Northern Rakhine State.  While tourist destinations in Rakhine State such as Ngapali beach and Mrauk U historic sites remain unaffected, Singaporeans are strongly advised to exercise caution as the security situation can deteriorate quickly.

Singaporeans currently in Rakhine State or travelling to Myanmar are strongly advised to remain vigilant and take all necessary precautions for their personal safety, including monitoring the local news closely and heeding the instructions of the local authorities. They should also purchase comprehensive travel and medical insurance and be familiar with the terms and coverage.  Singaporeans are advised to stay in touch with family and friends so that they know you are safe.

Singaporeans are also strongly encouraged to e-Register with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at https://eregister.mfa.gov.sg/, so that we can contact you should the need arise.
