Indians will now get visa on arrival in Myanmar
Good news for Indian travellers, as Myanmar visa on arrival list of countries now includes India. Myanmar travel could get a lot easier for tourists from India soon, as the country is going to grant visa on arrival. Indian President Ram Nath Kovind said so as he began his five-day visit to the country.
The President, who is visiting Myanmar to work on Act East Policy, and Neighbourhood First Policy, is also looking to improve people-to-people relations between the two nations. Hence, Myanmar has announced that the visa-on-arrival will be provided to those Indian tourists who are entering the country through their international airports, Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, and Mandalay.
Recently, Myanmar and India also had a Land-border Crossing Agreement that welcomed tourists by road, and many Indians from the Northeast region have been making use of this agreement. India and Myanmar has entry-exit checkpoints at the Tamu-Moreh and the Rihkhawdar-Zowkhawtar border.
Myanmar, erstwhile known as Burma, is a centuries old nation that is a gift to the modern world. If you want to explore an old nation full of stupas and pagodas, then Myanmar is perhaps where you would want to go to. Two of the most popular destinations in Myanmar are Yangoon, and Mandalay, but there are quite a few other important cities that will reveal the heart of this old land. Don’t miss out on Bagan that Marco Polo once described as “”gilded city.”
