Visa on Arrival at Myanmar

Visas on arrival in Myanmar

Currently, people from 101 different European Union member states can request tourism and commercial visa applications through an on-line system that has been in place since 2014. "We have asked the migration authorities to reinstate the issue of VOA to all nations if possible," said U Tint Thwin. It will assess the pros and cons of entry visa and examine the experience of other jurisdictions that also allow VOA.

He said only then will the division make a decision. Union Secretary for Hotel and Tourist Affairs U Ohn Maung said to The Myanmar Times on 29 July that if Siem Reap in Cambodia and Bagan in Myanmar could operate non-stop services, the introduction of the VOA system would attract more tourist arrivals.

"We need the help of the two departments - labour, immigration and population and transport and communication - for the entry visa and the flights linking the local lands to make Bagan more appealing to visitors," said U Ohn Maung. They' re willing to provide VOA in Nyaung-U International Airports for guests coming from Angkor Wat in Cambodia even within this year, said U Myint Kyaing.

We' ve already installed the vending machine for the checkpoint and are prepared to issue the visa upon arrival at Nyaung-U to assist the "two old towns, one destination" arrangement of the Department of Hotel and Tourism," he said. "Nyaung-U will be the 4th largest airfield where travellers can obtain tourist visa after Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw in the world," he said.
