Myanmar targets 5 million tourists with e-visa

YANGON (AFP) - Myanmar launched an online visa application on Monday promising an end to painful waits for permits to visit the once secretive nation as it tries to lure five million tourists a year by 2015.

The e-visa is open to tourists from 41 countries, from Singapore, China, Japan and North Korea to the United States and Britain, Minister of Immigration and Population Khin Yi told reporters.

The website is at www.evisa.moip.gov.mm.

Burma's e-Visa application service opens

Burma has today opened its e-Visa application service which it hopes will encourage more travellers to visit

The new service, found at www.myanmarevisa.gov.mm, is designed to be user-friendly and has been introduced as part of the country’s plans to encourage five million tourists a year by 2015.

The e-Visa is open to tourists from 41 countries, including the US, but only grants entry to the country at Yangon International Airport, making the method unsuitable for those crossing at land borders.

When applying for an e-Visa, travellers are being asked to agree to a number of conditions, one of which forbids the applicant from entering the “restricted area without seeking prior permission”.

Requests for permits to travel to restricted areas have to be made in Yangon or, in some cases, locally.
