Myanmar extends VOA to ASEAN business travellers
Rahul Khanna, Yangon, May 8, 2012
 

MYANMAR will introduce a new visa on arrival (VOA) scheme for business travellers from ASEAN member countries, effective June 1.

 

Speaking at a recent press conference in Nay Pyi Taw, the country’s Immigration Minister, U Khin Yi, said business travellers from the other nine ASEAN member states would be able to avail of the new VOA facility when flying into Yangon International Airport.

 

The VOA will cost US$40 and allow stays of up to 70 days, he said, adding that it would be extended to citizens of other countries at a later date.


In May 2010, Myanmar adopted a VOA system for overseas visitors arriving at Yangon and Mandalay International Airports. The scheme was scrapped just four months later by the country’s Immigration and National Registration Department.

 

A VOA facility is currently available for visitors arriving in the country on Myanmar Airways International flights from Phnom Penh and Guangzhou.
