Nationals of six more countries granted visa-on-arrival into Myanmar

The Myanmar government has introduced new regulations to facilitate easier access for foreign tourists as another step towards opening up the country to the world.

 

Started from October 1, tourists from six countries (Australia, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain and Switzerland) can enter Myanmar on visa-on-arrival (VOA) at Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw International Airports.

 

 

Pre-arrangement is not required for passport holders of these six countries, they can simply apply for a visa 

at any of the three airports for a fee of US$50 each. 

 

Visitors from Japan, South Korean, Hong Kong and Macau were granted visa-free entry last year.

 

Indian and mainland Chinese nationals were also granted visas-on-arrival (VOA) into Myanmar in a move to draw more Asian visitors to the country.

 

In the second quarter, Myanmar saw an increase in arrivals from countries granted visas free and visas-on-arrival treatment.

So Visa free does not actually mean free Visa! 55555

Methinks you need to study history a little further back than WW2. Your post is irellevant, misguided, besides being completely incorrect on the Visa part too.

Visa-free and a free Visa are two completely different things. Clever you.

Yes it is not a commutative group, i.e. Non Abelian if my poor group theory memory holds
