The British Embassy is following the situation carefully and we will continue to update the travel advice for Myanmar. If British Nationals have concerns for their safety in the current situation, they should consider leaving Myanmar by commercial means. British Nationals in Myanmar are advised to stay home and stay safe and check the travel advice, which contains information on how to contact the British Embassy or Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. Consular officials are working hard to respond to the concerns of British Nationals and are actively responding to events as they develop.
