Country Profile for Burma (Myanmar) for Traveling Canadians
OFFICIAL WARNING: Foreign Affairs Canada advises against all travel to the region(s) specified below. You are advised against all travel to border areas with Thailand or neighbouring areas where rebel groups may be active due to ongoing insurgency, banditry, and risk of landmines. Border crossing points may close without notice.
Tensions between pro-democracy and pro-regime supporters have resulted in violent clashes. The detention of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other opposition leaders, and the related closures of political party offices and universities across the country could lead to further demonstrations and violence. Canadians should exercise caution (particularly in the capital), avoid locations where demonstrations are being held and other public areas where disturbances could occur, and carefully monitor local and international news reports.
