Businessmen to Get Visas on Arrival

29 May 2012

Businessmen and conference attendees will be granted visas on arrival in Burma from Friday. Immigration Department Director-General Maung Maung Than said the visas will cost $50 but not be available for tourists. He said the visas will be available to nationals of 27 countries including the UK and the US. Burma introduced visas-on-arrival in 2010 but suspended the service before that year’s general election. Maung Maung Than also said a blacklist was updated to bar those who violated visa agreements, criminals and people banned by other government ministries.—AP
