Myanmar, Laos officials given US visa restrictions

The U.S. is placing visa restrictions on Myanmar and Laos for failing to accept their nationals when the U.S. seeks to deport them, RFA reported on 10 July.
        The State Department Tuesday ordered consular offices in the two countries to begin visa restrictions on certain categories of visas. They are as follows:
        BURMA: Discontinuing "issuance of all B1 (work) and B2 (travel) non-immigrant visas for current officials at the Director General level and above from the Myanmar Ministries of Labour, Immigration, and Population (MOLIP) and Home Affairs (MOHA), and their immediate family members, with limited exceptions."
        LAOS: Discontinuing "issuance of all B1, B2, and B1/B2 non-immigrant visas for current officials at the Director General level and above from the Lao Ministry of Public Security (MPS) as well as their immediate families; and all A3 and G5 (diplomatic and employees of international organizations) non-immigrant visas to individuals employed by Lao government officials, with limited exceptions.
        Both Myanmar and Laos are on the U.S. recalcitrant country list. The list includes nine countries that refuse to accept citizens deported from the U.S, the report said.
