The basic principle of customs policy in Myanmar is that visitors should exit the country with the same goods and personal possessions that they brought in. Any foreign currency exceeding the equivalent of USD 2,000, jewelry, cameras, video cameras, and professional recording equipments should be declared on your customs declaration form upon arrival. Exports of antique and archaeologically valuable items are prohibited.

Foreigners can bring any foreign currency into Myanmar not in excess of US$ 2000 or its equivalent without making a declaration to Customs on arrival. Only gems and jewelries purchased at the licensed dealers, or who can issue an export permit are allowed to be taken out of Myanmar.
