MOREH | Aug 4 : With a view to further develop business ties between India and Myanmar and also promote tourism, the Myanmarese government has announced facility for Visa on Arrival with effect from August 8.
The Myanmarese government has started preparations for organising an ‘Opening ceremony of International border of Myanmar- India’ at Tamu town of Myanmar on August 8 in an effort to ease transportation, business operations and tourism.
When media personnel based in Moreh went to investigate the ‘Welcome Pillars’ constructed near the Friendship Bridge on the road to the town of Tamu, Myanmarese locals expressed that there would no longer be any more problems of ‘Special Land Entry Permission’ in the country. The Myanmarese government in its bid to promote tourism in the country and business ties with other South East Asian countries has suspended the special land entry permission which was formerly required for visitors entering the country via land routes, they added.
It may be recalled here, that India with the same objective of promoting mutual business ties and tourism had also started construction of an Integrated Check Post (ICP) at Moreh Town which is also known the eastern Gate of India. The construction work commenced a few years back but still the ICP remains incomplete in its structure. There were reports that the ICP will be inaugurated a few months ago but it was postponed due to failure to complete the infrastructures in time. Even now, the entrance gate to the ICP and the path leading to it remains incomplete. In view of the prevailing conditions, citizens have started questioning whether the objectives of promoting business and tourism can be achieved.~IFP
