Mingalabar - Welcome to the website of the German Embassy in Yangon

Welcome to the website of the German Embassy in Yangon. In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science, research and development. With its good infrastructure and central location in Europe, Germany is one of the world's most attractive bases for business. Its beautiful urban and rural landscapes combining age old traditions and experimental modern culture, make a trip to Germany a unique experience. Germany has something for everyone - so why not pay us a visit?


Money Supply in Myanmar

The Embassy would like to point out that credit cards in general can hardly be used as a method of payment in Myanmar. Airlines and most hotels only accept US Dollar in cash. The dollar bills need to be in a pristine state (not folded, bent or labeled). It is now possible to withdraw money from ATM machines all over the country (3 x 300.000,- Kyats = approx. 900 Euro) using a Master/Visa Card with pin code or a Maestro-/Cirrus debit card. However, not all debit cards work. Please check with your bank before travelling.

Individual Travels to Myanmar

The German Embassy does not provide travel information of any kind. Please refer to the travel and security information provided by the Federal Foreign Office.

Kindly refrain from contacting the Embassy in tourist matters.

The energy transition – the project, the goals, the successes

Zeitschrift Deutschland

Germany has set itself an ambitious goal: at least 80% of its electricity supply is to come from renewable energy sources by 2050. How is this forward-looking energy transition being implemented?

DE Magazin Deutschland throws light on Germany’s energy transition in a series of reports, interviews and essays. Additional topics: Federal Foreign Minister explains the importance of the European elections in an interview.
