Beginning on September 12, foreign nationals will no longer need to fill in arrival or departure cards at Yangon (RGN), Mandalay (MDL), and Nay Pyi Taw (NYT) international airports. This move is intended to promote the country's tourism sector and attract more foreign visitors to the country.
In 2017, Myanmar (a.k.a. Burma) attracted 3.4 million foreign visitors. Authorities now hope to receive 7 million yearly visitors by 2020.
As a reminder, foreign nationals traveling to Myanmar must obtain a visa prior to departure. One should apply at the nearest Burmese embassy or consulate well in advance of travel. Passports should be valid for a minimum period of six months from the date of entry into the country. For additional information regarding entry requirements, contact a Burmese embassy.
