Myanmar expands VOA scheme again
Rahul Khanna, Yangon, May 30, 2012
 

MYANMAR will offer visas-on-arrival (VOA) to conference attendees and transit visitors from 27 countries, effective June 1.

 

This is an extension of its plan to offer VOAs to business travellers from ASEAN member countries (TTG Asia e-Daily, May 8, 2012).

 

Under the new arrangement, visitors from ASEAN, Australia, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK and the US, will be able to avail of a 70-day business visa for US$50, a 28-day entry visa for meetings, workshops and events for US$40, or a 24-hour transit visa for US$20.

 

While only available at Yangon International Airport for now, the VOA service will be introduced at Nay Pyi Taw and Mandalay airports in the near future. A tourist VOA is also in the pipeline.

 

VOA is currently granted to visitors from any country arriving on Myanmar Airways International flights from Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Guangzhou.
