Myanmar passport holders will also be granted 45 days of visa-free stay in Thailand.

YANGON (Eleven Media News/Asia News Network): Thailand has announced the extension of a visa-free stay period for foreigners to 45 days effective from October this year, allowing Myanmar citizens to enjoy such a privilege.

According to bilateral agreement, Myanmar passport holders will also be granted 45 days of visa-free stay in Thailand.

While the Thai government granted up to 30 days of visa-free stay to foreigners entering the country, Myanmar citizens had the right to enjoy only 14 days, but could stay for 60 days with tourist visas.

The latest announcement was issued by the Royal Thai Embassy in Ottawa, Canada, on Sept 30. However, the Thai Embassy in Myanmar has not released such an announcement.

Some tour companies in Yangon city released news about the 45 days of visa-free stay for Myanmar citizens, instead of 14 days.

“We have learnt that for Myanmar citizens going to Thailand, they will be granted a 45-day visa-free stay. But the Thai embassy has not announced yet,” said an official from tour agency.

The State-owned Myanmar National Airlines has announced that with daily flights from Yangon to Bangkok, a one-way ticket for Bangkok-Yangon can be available for US$95.
