Foreigners allowed to visit Mogok under permissions of ministries concerned

As Mogok region in Mandalay Region is a restricted area for foreigners, they will be allowed to visit there under permissions of the relevant ministries and local authorities.
The departments in cooperation with foreign experts make field trips to Mogok for undertaking regional development tasks. The departments concerned must hold coordination with Region Immigration and National Registration Department for ensuring smooth process of the visits of foreigners to do respective departmental tasks in Mogok region. As such, the foreigners can easily pass the checkpoints in the region.
“Mogok region has been restricted in successive governments. At present, the government has eased many restrictions in various parts of the country, except Mogok. So, we have sent information letters to departments concerned and hotels for smooth process of foreigners’ visits organized by departments in Mogok region,” said director of Mandalay Region INRD.
The region INRD sent information letters to the departments concerned quoting the notification of the Ministry of Home Affairs that announced restricted areas for foreigners on lists of local tourist destinations.–Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
