Business / Social Tips

The following are some tips on business and social visits that may help you while in Myanmar:

  • Appointments should be made in advance and punctuality is appreciated.

  • Business cards are exchanged after introduction.

  • For business meetings, men should wear a lightweight suit and tie, while the women should wear modest clothes.

  • It is customary to shake hands on meeting and saying goodbye. When addressing people always use the appropriate prefix and family name.

  • Many people in Myanmar do not have a first name and last name as in western countries, but instead have many names (three to four words). Generally, every name has a meaning; therefore, it is advisable to address the complete name especially if you have not been full acquainted with the person.

  • It is useful, but not essential, to have some business cards in Myanmar script.

  • Many executives in Myanmar speak English.

  • Visitors should be receptive to local customs and conventions. When sitting cross-legged on sofas or cushions, soles of the feet must not be shown.

  • Footwear is strictly prohibited in pagodas and monasteries.

  • Tips in restaurants and hotels are not required but appreciated (around 5 - 10 percent of total bill). Tips for taxies are not necessary.

  • On social occasions such as an invitation to a restaurant, be punctual and dress as for business meetings unless otherwise indicated.
