Thai-Myanmar border gates will be designated as official international border gates as of August 28 this year, according to Myanmar’s Ministry of Immigration and Population.
This will allow Thai citizens and foreign tourists with valid passports to enter Myanmar by land and depart from other official gateways including Yangon, Nay Pyi Taw and Mandalay.
A bilateral agreement between the two countries will create official gates at Tarchileik-Mae Sai, Myawady-Mae Sot, Kawthaung-Ranong and Htee Khee-Sunaron.
No official changes have yet been made concerning length of stay, renewal of visa, and visa fees. And visa-on-arrival will still not be available at the border gates due to the current security situation, officials said.
Visitors can visit anywhere in the country except restricted areas released in this January by Ministry of Home Affairs. The list of the restricted areas can be acquired at any of the border gates.
