Nonexistent service and ridiculously useless website
1. When an embassy lists contact numbers on a website, it should employ people to answer the calls. The website is not helpful, and there is no customer service to address any issues/ queries.

2. For renewal of passport process, there is no application form available for download.

To whom it may concern
I would like to work in Singapore as a best worker. I don't want to work in Myanmar because of salary problem. Even if we do hard working , we will be getting not enough money for our family. And also I am
the one who has got a big family.All my family members
are 15 including my grandfather and grandmother. Sometimes I am very upset. The reason why I upset is no one can make enough money for our family. I am sorry for every day thinking about it. Please bring me to your country to do your job.

NO ONE SEEMS TO ASK THE PHONE LINES THE WHOLE DAY
Dear Ambassador

Please request your staffs to ask phone calls. Why list all the phone numbers in the website but no one seems to be asking the phone. Morning till evening. Very frustrating!!

Since no one is answering the phones, we send emails but also received no reply.

IS THE EMBASSY CLOSED!!!

DEAR AMBASSADOR PLEASE SEES LOOK INTO THIS ISSUE.
THANKS

The most inefficient Embassy ever- Myanmar Embassy in Singapore
I recently went to Myanmar Embassy to renew my passport and I had the worst experience of my life which made me feel depressed about being a Myanmar citizen. Prior to my renewal, I made an appointment online, prepared all the documents described in the website and I even contacted the embassy to confirm about the documents needed for passport renewal.

On the actual day, I was asked to present the documents which were not stated in the official website and also not included in the list which the customer service officer mentioned. I had to pay several extra charges such as SERVICE CHARGES, INCOME TAX CHARGES especially for the 3 months period during when I was searching for job after my graduation while holding my Long Term Visit Pass & 150 SGD for passport renewal. I was already surprised we have to pay 150 dollars just for passport renewal whereas other countries charge not more than 50 dollars for each citizen.

The worst thing was asking for money for not being able to present the documents which are NOT STATED IN THE OFFCIAL WEBSITE. As I argued with the officer, I was told that I am supposed to know which document to bring in order to renew my passport and customer service officer does not know anything. My question was how am I supposed to know what I need to bring if those documents were not mentioned at all & how can you appoint such person to be customer service officer if she does not know anything. I had to spend the whole day at the Embassy, wasting time and money, making unecessary trip back to my house and I received my passport only at 6pm.

I am sure I was not the only person who encountered this kind of problem as there were quite a lot of people who graduated here and working. By now, they should have implemented the wesbite, make necessary amendments to ensure that people get better idea regarding the procedure rather than giving horrible experiences to every single person on the day itself.

I am very disappointed with the service the embassy provides, the attitude of the embassy staff as well as the time needed for each procedure. I spoke to the staff in-charge at the end of the day, explaining what I went through and she assured me that she would feedback to the officers. As we all know, I am 100% sure my feedback will never be considered.
Is this the level of service an embassy provides to its own Citizens?

My Experience
I have read several unpleasant comments about the staffs of Myanmar Embassy but my experience today was totally different. I was at the Myanmar Embassy this morning to apply for tourist visa n the lady who served me was really nice n helpful. It took me less than 5 mins to submit my application because I have all the necessary documents ready as per the Visa Guide in the Myanmar Embassy website and was told to collect on the same day around 4.30pm. In fact I also emailed the Embassy on Sat n got a reply around 9.15am this morning which I think was already very efficient as they do not work on Sat and Sun. In all, I would rate my experience at the Embassy today as 10/10, perfect score.

No response type of attitude
I have been calling the Myanmar Embassy for weeks and still unable to get in touch with them on the phone. All the lines have no one to pick up and answer them. Very frustrating with such services from the Embassy. I even sent them 2 emails and have no reply for more than 1 month. How am I going to renew the passport where there are no application form to download land also no one to give you advise or guide you on the procedures.

Is this the type of services we expected here in Singapore ?

My recent experience..
The following is my recent e-mail to the ambassador about the my problem. Of course, no one answers the phone calls or read the e-mails. I'll just post it here for everyone's reference. It's a little lengthy.


Dear Mr.Ambassador,

It is me again. Today, I just went to Myanmar Embassy in Singapore and had the worst experience of my life. I have never been so depressed about being a Myanmar National until today.

I have emailed you previously about my problem concerning my lost passport and the need for "Certificate of Identification". I needed it to travel out of the country since my SOCIAL VISIT PASS has expired and I am on a special pass from the ICA which expires on the 22nd, which is tomorrow, Tuesday.

Since there was NO REPLY on how to proceed, NO INSTRUCTIONS whatsoever on the website or the general internet, I just went to the Embassy.

I was there at 9 a.m. I took a queue like everyone else. I did whoever is in charge of the counters instructed me to do, paid $30 dollars in "service charges" and waited for my name to be called. When my name is finally called, at 12.30 p.m, the ladies in charge tells me I do not have the necessary documents confirming my status as a "full time" student during the period of the passport's "Issue date" and "Expiry Date" because they do not know whether I was "working" and just doing part-time "studies". Therefore, they needed to be sure whether I had to PAY TAX before issuing me the certificate.

A couple of problems here.

1)How come I was not told of this EARLIER? How come I had to go through 2 QUEUES, 3 COUNTERS and had to WAIT 3 hours and 30 minutes just to be turned down?

2)They told me I was not prepared. How was I suppose to KNOW when I COULDN'T CONTACT through ALL of your telephones numbers, NO REPLY through e-mail and NO INFORMATION on the website?

3) My school is a PRIVATE INSTITUTION (MDIS). Singapore laws CLEARLY STATES that I cannot engage in any FORM OF EMPLOYMENT while holding my STUDENT PASS. And I've got a transcript of my FULL COURSE of studies from Diploma to Degree. Apparently, it doesn't show anything that says "FULL TIME STUDENT" on it so it wasn't VALID. They asked me to get a letter of confirmation from my school, which is a very plausible thing, except that the school also needs at least 1 WORKING DAY to process it.

After I was turned down, I politely backed off because it was your lunch break time and I respect that you guys have certainly been working hard. I came back again later, ONLY TO BE TOLD TO GO AWAY.

Finally, I found a nice person who was willing to listen to me.

I told him I was at risk of getting DETAINED and BLACKLISTED by the Singapore Immigration. If that happened, I will not be able to come back to Singapore easily.

Not only was I at risk of being shut out from the country my immediate family was in but my future to be able to work in Singapore. He listened and the only advice he can give was to NEGOTIATE with my school to speed up the process for my letter of confirmation and come back tomorrow again AND NEGOTIATE with the person in charge because If I do not get an early issue to my "Certificate of Identification", I will not make it IN TIME to show the Singapore Immigration.

I had no further choice but to rush to my school and BEG the staff to please issue me the letter ASAP. It is SAD and HUMILIATING that my OWN COUNTRYMEN were not able to help me but strangers could?

Luckily, they were MORE UNDERSTANDING then my own country's embassy and agreed. Thou the best they can do was 10 a.m.

So I hope to God that everything will go well tomorrow so that I don't get LISTED as an OFFENDER of the Singapore's Immigration laws by the ICA.
