From October 1st, tourists from six countries namely Australia, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain and Switzerland can enter Myanmar on visa-on-arrival at Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw international airports.

According to new regulations, passport holders of these six countries can simply apply for a visa at any of the three airports for a fee of 50 USD each.
