Myanmar Visa Free for Cambodian people
From Dec 2014, Cambodian people are allowed to visit Myanmar for 2 weeks period without making Myanmar Visa or visa arrangement. This news will boost the mutual tourism of both country.
The December 12 agreement was signed by Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs U Tin Oo Lwin and Sieng Burvuth, Cambodia’s ambassador to Myanmar. Under the agreement, Myanmar citizens will be permitted to visit Cambodia for up to 14 days without a visa, and vice versa.
Direct air links between the two countries were launched in early 2011 by Myanmar Airways International (MAI), which opened a service between Yangon and Siem Reap, then to Phnom Penh.
MAI’s marketing manager Daw Aye Mra Tha said the relaxing of visa requirements would likely encourage more tourists to fly the route. “Cambodia has been offering visa on arrival since we started our operation to Siem Reap. I welcome this visa exemption agreement,” she said.
A Yangon-based businessperson who frequently travels abroad also said he welcomed the agreement. “This agreement means no more queuing for Myanmar visitors [when they arrive in] Cambodia. It would be very useful if our government could reach similar agreements with other regional countries, like Thailand.”
Myanmar has targeted visa exemption agreements with all nine fellow ASEAN members but Cambodia is only the third to sign such a deal. An agreement with Laos was signed in 2009, while on September 26 Vietnam agreed to the visa exemption program. Thailand and Indonesia have agreed in principle to the arrangement but the formal signing has not yet taken place.
