Renewal of Passport

Myanmar citizens holding ordinary Myanmar Passports and their dependents are eligible to apply for a new Passport if their respective passports have only a few blank pages or if the validity period of the passport is less than six months.

              After receiving the new passports, it is necessary for applicants to return the old passports to the Embassy without fail, after visa and stay permit has been transferred to the new passports. It is necessary because the Embassy has to forward old passports to the Passport Issuing Board in Myanmar according to the existing rules and procedures.
