Finns Urged to Leave Myanmar

Myanmar 2021 Light

The Finnish government is concerned about the escalation of violence in Myanmar as a result of the coup in the Asian country in February. It urges its citizens to leave the country as soon as possible.

On 29 March 2021, Finland and the other Nordic countries raised the alert level of its travel advice, urging travelers to leave the country.

According to government information, the army and police in Myanmar have used violence in responding to large protests against the coup. Violence has intensified and escalated in the past few weeks. Hundreds of people have been killed and thousands have become wounded. 

Many standard functions in society have deteriorated in Myanmar. Banking sector and public healthcare services are very limited, and imports of goods have practically come to a halt.

Finland strongly condemns the coup and calls for a return to democracy.
