Amid a surge in violence in Myanmar, India, on Tuesday, released an advisory where it advised its nationals to refrain from visiting the country. Also, it advised Indians living in the war zone to fill out a form, detailing their names and other necessary details. “In view of the evolving security situation in Myanmar, all Indian nationals are advised to avoid non-essential travel. Those already living in Myanmar are advised to take precautions and avoid travel to the regions affected by violence,” it said.
The Ministry of External Affairs, in its latest advisory, asked to refrain from using inter-state travel by road. Also, it asked Indian nationals living in Myanmar to register with the Embassy of India, Yangon by filling up the emergency form. In earlier stances like the Russia-Ukraine war, Israel-Hamas war, India-Canada tensions, and Sudan conflict, New Delhi had issued similar notifications and asked its nationals to fill out the emergency form so that the concerned embassies could reach out in case of evacuation.
