The annual ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF-2019) provides an excellent platform for Myanmar among international delegates and media to showcase its diverse range of new and exciting tourism products, services and events of the country.
In 2018 Myanmar government has introduced new regulations to facilitate easier access for tourists to visit the country as a next step to open up to the world.
Japanese, South Korean, Hong Kong and Macau tourists were granted visa-free entry and Chinese and Indian nationals were also granted visas-on-arrival (VOA) into Myanmar in a move to attract more Asian tourism into the country.
Government allowed all nationalities to enter Myanmar through the two overland borders: Tamu and Rih Khaw Dar and continue to travel overland to Thailand and use any of the four Thailand borders to exit Myanmar. These 2 border points offer easy access for further exploring into the country.
Although 2018 has been a challenging year for Myanmar Tourism, high hopes and strong belief remain across the country that tourism will bring positive change to this culturally diverse nation.
