Permanent residency granted to 547 foreigners in over four years

Myanmar has granted permanent residency to 547 of 614 foreign applicants over the past four years since January 29, 2015 when PR was launched, according to sources released by the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population on September 4.

PR for foreigners in Myanmar is divided into four categories—professional, investor, old Myanmar citizen and mixed-race.

PR cards were given after scrutiny and interviews in accord with the rules and regulations prescribed by the implementation committee and work committee for granting PR to foreigners.

The latest interview for granting PR was held at the meeting hall of the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population in Nay Pyi Taw on September 2.

The Union Minister for Labour, Immigration and Population and committee members met individual applicants and asked them about their personal information and the prescribed rules.

After the interview, 20 foreigners were granted PR cards. They are one investor, 14 old Myanmar citizens and their mix-raced relatives.
