Legal Matters

You have absolutely no legal recourse in case of arrest or detainment by the authorities, regardless of the charge. If you are arrested, you will most likely be permitted to contact your consular agent in Myanmar for possible assistance.

If you purchase gems or jewellery from persons or shops that are not licensed by the government, you run the risk of having them confiscated if customs officials find them in your baggage when you're exiting the country.

Drug-trafficking crimes are punishable by death.
