Arrival in Myanmar.
There is currently no international banking network in Myanmar. Almost no establishments can accept credit or debit cards, Travellers Cheques are not accepted and there is no ATM network in operation. Travellers to Myanmar should carry all their funds in the form of cash US Dollars.
Mr Myanmar Travel accepts balance payments in US Dollars (US$100 Bills) only.
Please follow these guidelines carefully when obtaining US Dollars for use within Myanmar.
* Bring a selection of denominations. US$100 Bills to pay for your travel arrangements and to exchange for local currency. US$100 bills will obtain the best rate of exchange. You will need smaller notes to pay for entrance and zone fees and the international departure tax (US$10).
* US Dollar banknotes should be post (after) 1996 issues with a ‘big’ Presidents head.
* Check the serial numbers. Due to past counterfeiting any banknote bearing serial numbers starting with the letters ‘AB’ or ‘CB’ will be refused.
* Check the condition of your banknotes very carefully. All US Dollar banknotes MUST be in pristine, mint condition. Banknotes that are torn, damaged, defaced (written on, marked with stamps or ink, etc) or excessively folded will be refused.
Mr Myanmar Travel, along with all other agencies, ticket sellers, hotels, moneychangers and any other service providers that accept payment in US Dollars, cannot accept any banknotes that do not meet the above criteria.
