Burma is currently on the visa national list and nationals of Burma therefore need to apply for a visa in advance of travel to the UK. All applications for visas are considered on an individual basis.

Individuals subject to a UN or EU travel ban will be automatically refused a UK visa or leave to enter the UK should they be encountered at the border.

The UK keeps its visa system under regular review. Decisions on changes are always taken in the round, and reflect key facets of the bilateral relationship with the country concerned. The Government is monitoring the situation in Burma.

There are currently no plans to change the visa policy for individuals from Burma.
