March 23, 2020 Events General News 0

…. Just back from City Mart Minigone after the news broke – 1. two positive corona cases in Myanmar no reason to panic, , Myanmar has rice for 5 years and every one living in Myanmar. A special compliment to all the great Miyanigone City Mart staff and management how smooth and easy they worked through hundreds of shopping people, a well done best job.

Dear Chefs, you sure all had the same hope,- that Myanmar could stay Corona Virus free…so did I hoped. The 1. two positive tested cases are there and others will have been infected. It is up to the Government possible to block off areas and restrict travel. Myanmar had the unique chance to learn from several top developed countries as China, S Korea, Italy, Germany, UK , USA and others. All made major mistakes, mainly with acting often to slow and half hearted. I expect from the Myanmar Government & Army to join hands in most quick quarantine and rules enforcement. Sure they are well prepared and the amount of problems building up in Myanmar is up to everyone as you, your friends or colleges.

Follow the rules in hygiene, stay as much as possible alone,- keep elder and sick people isolated from visitors at your homes. Keep up with healthy food supported by much Vitamin C and B1. Whenever you get a crazy news on Face Book, SMS or mail, double check always, check the Ministry of Health website and ” Myanmar News.com “. There are many which extra post fake news to start riots and panic. Call them and warn them or report them to officials. Myanmar can withstand this corona Virus when Unity is ensured all over.     

” Myanmar Chefs plans Help the Helping “,-

… as several chefs might loose the job, be free we try to set up a ” Volunteer Chefs ” task force team, which can help cooking for people which help at the quarantine places or Hospitals. Chefs can be very useful with many skills related to healthy food. Pls come forward when you are free for a Database to : Ma Khet Khet, 01 501123 – angel@ytp.com.mm – angelatmyanmar@gmail.com. Chefs interested should be young and top healthy to beat a front,- others can help as admin – coordinator also from ” Home Office “.

— Also let us know when you know Myanmar or Foreign companies which have food to donate and cook at places now most needed in a view days.   

It is possible and useful when chefs are free to help community in these days and take a burden and work off from them which direct help the sick and screened people.

But both the civilian and the military leadership are preparing for the worst.

  2. If applying for an employee, the company must provide additional supporting documents of their business such as contracts, invoices, licenses, etc.

The above conditions are only eligible during the COVID-19 quarantine period based on official announcements from the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

A copy of the employment contract must be included along with all other applications. DICA has requested companies to refrain from submitting applications if the visa of the applicant is more than 3 weeks from the expiry date.

The following are the required documents for Stay Permit Application and Renewal:

  • Copy of the incorporation certificate of the company from DICA together with the evidence of the company’s engagement such as invoices, tax certificates, etc.
