AHK Myanmar

Your partner in the most exciting developing market

Federal President Gauck launches AHK Myanmar

Since its establishment and official opening by German Federal President Joachim Gauck in February 2014, the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce supports German companies seeking information and advice on market entry in one of the most exciting countries worldwide. Challenges remain in a market, where legislative frameworks, economic development and the local business structure undergo rapid changes following the opening up in 2011.
The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce as part of the AHK network supports with a range of services tailored to the needs of German companies and works on inquiries regarding exports, investment, sourcing and project activities. It closely co-operates with local institutions, especially the UMFCCI (Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry) and fosters contacts with Myanmar companies. It works alongside the German Myanmar Business Chamber (GMBC).

Visiting Myanmar - be prepared!

When you visit Myanmar, keep in mind the following:

Business visitors need a visa - and an official invitation letter. Visa on arrival procedures at Yangon airport are smooth if you have your documents at hand. Since 1 July 2015, e business visa are available with a 3 days processing time. Please note that visa procedures have changed in January 2016 - but processes for singel entry business visa should be unchanged.

Myanmar is a cash economy. ATMs exist and both Visa and Mastercard are accepted in most hotels and some restaurants. But bring enough cash in USD - new bank notes only!

You can get roaming with European mobile phones - but please check with your provider, which contract upgrade you may need. You can purchase local SIM cards after arrival.

In preparation: read up to date information on Myanmar collected by the Delegation and check our AHK Myanmar brochure.

When you follow up: Myanmar is a text only country. As internet connection is weak, avoid to send huge files.

And look forward to your visit in the most friendly country in Asia (and probably world wide)!
