Myanmar commerce ministry declares import license list

Import licenses will now be required for around 4000 kinds of goods in Myanmar. This will take effect on December 1, the Ministry of Commerce announced.

Traders for a total of 3931 goods categories including live animals, meat and fish, edible oil, vegetables and crops, forest products, beverages, mineral fuels, chemicals, medicines, automobiles and machinery are required to apply for import licenses under the HS Code 2017 Version.

“We previously announced that licenses will not be required for more than 4000 goods. But some departments requested to put some items which require licenses back in the list so we have done after conducting an annual review,” said U Khin Maung Lwin, permanent secretary of the Ministry of Commerce.

“Of the 3931 goods that require import licenses, applications for more than 1000 can be done fully online,” he said.
