Vietnamese passport holders would no longer have to get a visa to visit Myanmar from October 26 this year, the Foreign Ministry has said.
According to the visa exemption pact between Vietnam and Myanmar, citizens need to have their passports valid for at least six months, and their stay in Myanmar must not exceed 14 days.
The visa exemption agreement for ordinary passport holders between the two nations was signed between Myanmar Foreign Minister U Wunna Maung Lwin and Vietnamese Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh in New York earlier this month.
Vietnamese passport holders are now visa-exempt in nine Asean countries.
A tourist visa to Myanmar used to cost US$20 for Vietnamese residents.
