Airbnb has suspended hosting at all of its existing listings in Myanmar in response to the implementation of new laws in the country prohibiting foreign tourists from staying at unregistered guesthouses or hotels. The country’s 1947 Immigration Act states that foreign visitors on a tourist visa must stay in a hotel or in registered guesthouses. It is illegal to rent out private homes or offer short-term rentals to tourists in Myanmar. Only permanent residents and foreigners holding specific business visas are permitted to rent out apartments or houses on a short-term basis.
