Myanmar will become the 42nd country to issue visa on arrival to Indian travellers.
What Is It?
In an effort to boost people to people relations, Myanmar is soon going to grant visa on arrival to Indian tourists. This has coincided with President Ram Nath Kovind’s visit to the country. This will make traveling to Myanmar a lot more easier. How it works currently is that Indians have to apply for e visa through the government’s official website. Post which it takes 3 days for a tourist visa and 24 hours for an express tourist visa. But with visa on arrival the processing time will be completely eliminated.
It’s interesting to note that Myanmar will become the 42nd country to issue visas on arrival to Indian travellers. What makes this development more interesting is that recently before Myanmar, Zimbabwe and Malaysia started granting the VoA to Indians.
