Myanmar's law provides many solutions to help employers of foreign nationals. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

Business visitors must obtain a Business Visa. Under the current immigration environment, business visitors to Myanmar (including those who obtain a Business Visa prior to entering the country and those who obtain a Visa on Arrival) may perform a wide variety of activities, including those that would normally be considered work activities in other countries.

Foreign nationals can use a Business Visa, along with a Stay Permit and Multiple Re-Entry Permit, to work in Myanmar up to 70 days per stay, with the availability of three, six or twelve-month extensions.

Note that Myanmar’s immigration laws are currently in flux and are developing, and are not fully consistent across the board.
