YANGON—Myanmar has issued a passport to opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, her party said Tuesday, as the former political prisoner prepares to travel abroad for the first time in 24 years.

“We were informed on Friday that Daw Suu got her passport. Her passport is in her hand now,” said Nyan Win, spokesman for the veteran activist’s National League for Democracy (NLD) party. Daw is a term of respect in Myanmar.
