If you’re planning to fly to Myanmar, things just got easier because Myanmar is offering visa on arrival for Indians.
What Is It?
Myanmar becomes the 42nd country to provide visa on arrival for Indian tourists. In the current scenario, Indians have to fill up a form on the Myanmar Tourism website, through which a regular tourist visa takes about 3 days to be granted and an express visa takes nearly 24 hours. But with the introduction of visa on arrival, Indians will be able to get visa on arrival at Myanmar’s Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon and Mandalay airports.
Myanmar and India will also be entering a Land-border Crossing Agreement that will allow tourists travelling by road to enter and exit both countries through Rikhawdar-Zowkhawtar and Tamu-Moreh borders. The same visa rules will apply for the road travellers as well.
The purpose of signing the Land-border agreement with Myanmar will definitely boost the tourism for North East India as tourists will use that route to enter Myanmar.
