Emergency Contact Information
The U.S. Embassy in Rangoon is located at 110 University Avenue, Kamayut Township, and is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. M-F. The Embassy Telephone is (95)-(1)-536-509. If you are a U.S. citizen in need of urgent after-hours assistance, the After-Hours Duty Officer Telephone number is (95)-(9)-512-4330. The 24 Hour Embassy Telephone number is (95)-(1)-500-547. If calling the 24 Hour Embassy Telephone, explain that you want to speak to the Duty Officer or a Consular Officer. These numbers are not to be used for visa inquiries.
The safety and well-being of United States citizens in Burma is the Consular Office's primary concern. Consular Officers and staff are able to assist citizens in distress, citizens who are the victims of crime, and citizens who find themselves in other emergency situations.
The Consular Section regrets to inform you that as of May 1, 2013, we will no longer accept FECs. We will only accept U.S. dollars (in good condition).
