In a welcome move, the Myanmarese Government has announced the facility for ‘Visa on Arrival’ with effect from August 8 for better trade ties with India and also to promote tourism.
The initiative is viewed as an effort to ease transportation, business operations and tourism between the two countries.
‘Welcome Pillars’ have been erected near the Friendship Bridge on the road to the town of Tamu from Moreh.
Meanwhile, Myanmarese locals have expressed that there would no longer be any problems of ‘Special Land Entry Permission’ in the country.
The Myanmarese Government in its bid to promote tourism in the country and business ties with other South East Asian countries has suspended the special land entry permission which was formerly required for visitors entering the country via land routes.
Notably, India had also started construction of an Integrated Check Post (ICP) at Moreh Town which is also known the eastern gate of India with the same objective of promoting mutual business ties and tourism.
However, it is yet to see completion of construction and functioning thereafter.
